Tell us what’s happening:
please, I completely confuse, try but stuck, please help.

Your code so far

function nextInLine(arr, item) {
  // Your code here
  arr.push(item);
  arr.shift(arr [0]);
  return arr[0] || item;
}

// Test Setup
var testArr = [1,2,3,4,5];

// Display Code
console.log("Before: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));
console.log(nextInLine (testArr, 1)); // Modify this line to test
console.log("After: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));

array.shift() will always pop the first element, so you don’t need to give it an argument (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Array/shift). It returns the element that it removes so you can store that in a variable and then return it, or you can do both steps in one.

please, i appreciate your help, please more light on how to go about this.


#4

You are shifting twice, i.e. each time you call arr.shift() it removes the first item, you need to shift only once.
