Overbeating batter

When a recipe says “be careful not to overbeat”… what does that mean, and why? How do I know if I’m overbeating?

    it means that you beat it too long, so that you get too much air in it.

    It means you have to gently spoon the mixture together so as not to knock out all the air. The air in the batter will bake your cake nice a well risen, if over beaten your cake will come out flat.

    It means that you don’t want to knock the air or of your mixture. So you need to mix until just combined
