Tell us what’s happening:

Why its failing the test cases?

Your code so far


function titleCase(str) {
  let arr = str.split(' ');
  let narr= [];
  for(let i in arr){
//console.log(arr[i].charAt(0).toUpperCase());
//console.log(arr[i].slice(1).toLowerCase());
narr[i] = arr[i].charAt(0).toUpperCase()+arr[i].slice(1).toLowerCase();
  //console.log(arr[i].charAt(0).toUpperCase()+arr[i].slice(1).toLowerCase());
  //console.log(narr[i]);    
  }
  return narr.join(''); 
}

titleCase("I'm a little tea pot");

console.log() this and you might just find out your mistake.
Hint: It has something to do with this:

Try solving now.

Instead of using for, you can use filter(),
Also inside the filter callback: arr.filter(value => { // callback }) you can:

  • create a variable and assign the value with lowercase method: cont lowerString = value.toLowerCase()
  • Then you could create another variable and substract the first characther of the string and transform with upperCase method: lowerString.charAt(0).toUpperCase(). As you can see you have the first characther with upperCase.
  • And finally you can return this two variables with + but keep in mind that you have to slice the first variables and remove the first character and assign the new value. return varUpperCase + varLowerString.slice(1)

Another aproach could be with regular expression and replace method:

var string = 'YAMIT VILLAMIL';
var regExp = /([a-zA-Z])([a-zA-Z]+)/g;

function caseSensitive(match, group1, group2) {
     return group1.toUpperCase() + group2.toLowerCase();
}

string = string.replace( regExp, caseSensitive);
