I have the below Javascript code:



Output from first console.log.



Output from second console.log:


Though I understand that in the second output, product is a key and the value is an object (which are further key-value pairs), I dont understand how this conversion is done?

Just by enclosing the object name "product" inside braces, what is happening? Is there any technical term for this?

So by adding the braces, you are creating an object with a single property, product, that references the value in variable product.
