What is Object.prototype

Object.prototype is the value of the property key "prototype" of the function Object. [see Object Object]

Object.hasOwnProperty ( "prototype" ) 


Type of Object.prototype is Object .

typeof Object.prototype === "object"


Parent of Object.prototype is null.

Reflect.getPrototypeOf ( Object.prototype ) === null 


Object.prototype is the root parent of all standard objects.

So, for any property key k of Object.prototype, you can access it by obj.k where obj is any object. If the object obj has k as its own property, the own property is used.
