How to use api documentation

https://app.dataquest.io/c/18/m/53/intermediate-apis/10/further-exploration

Throughout this intermediate lesson I have been so confused as to how the API documentation for Github being constantly referred to in this lesson would be of help to me.

I click on the link and all i see is RESET API, I really dont know how to nagivate through the documentation to acquire information on the paginations, the parameters required for Patch, post and put requests as well as the various endpoints available in Github.

what happens when I open the link

well it’s meant as a reference for example on the part of the lesson about pagination if you click on that link it shows the parameter and the possible arguments to place inside of it. Just use their search bar lol it’s rather helpful compared to other sites.
