Apparent Bug in the JavaScript course

Tell us what’s happening:

I’m using recursion and it still says I’m wrong and doesn’t let me continue? Tried a bunch of different possible ways to write it, seems like a bug.

Your code so far


function sum(arr, n) {
// Only change code below this line
if (n <= 0) {
  return arr[0];
} else {
  return sum(arr, n - 1) + arr[n];
}
// Only change code above this line
}
