Cant use any filter parameters on graphql in strapi

[details=“System Information”]

  • Strapi Version: 3.6.8
  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • Database: Mysql
  • Node Version: 16.13.2

I have been unable to use any of the filter parameters on graphl query in strapi using the url (http://localhost:1337/graphql). I am using strapi 3.6.8 . I have a collection (Animals) that has an array of Habitat. When I try to limit the number of Habitat returned for each record to 3, it doesn’t work with the query below.

        Animals {
          Habitat(limit: 3) {
            Feature {

I get the error message: “Unknown argument “limit” on field “Animal.Habitat”.”

the limit, where or any other filter does not work. They work however when I use them on the Animals itself. Kindly help
