i,

If my returned JSON is of the format as mentioned below, how do i get the Value "Project.Description"? using JQuery?

                                               
REST Request

function getitems() {
    var url = "http://sc-spstd-dev.mysite.com/it/PM/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('IT Dashboard Project')/items?$filter=Id eq 39";
    $.ajax({
        url: url,
        method: "GET",
        headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" },
        success: function (data) {
            if (data.d.results.length == 1) {
                alert("success: " + data.d.results.Project.Description);

                $("#dataholder").html(JSON.stringify(data));
                //success(data.d.results[0]);
            }
            else {

                alert("failure: " + JSON.stringify(data));

                //failure("Multiple results obtained for the specified Id value");
            }
        },
        error: function (data) {
            //failure(data);
        }
    });
}
Returned JSON
