Basic JavaScript - Stand in Line

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I have tried Push() then shift() but i am not moving forward. I have not been able to return 2 and 5?
Your code so far

function nextInLine(arr, item) {
 // Only change code below this line


return item;
return arr.shift();


   // Your code here

 // Change this line
 // Only change code above this line

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

// Display code
console.log("Before: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));
console.log(nextInLine(testArr, 6));
console.log("After: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));

Link to the challenge:

your code always returns item, remember that when a return is executed, the function stops

Check what i have.

This is what i have, but still doesn’t solve my issue.

You are still returning item, when that is not what you should return. What do the instructions ask?

hey, @rkithinjie you are almost there but remember that;

arr.shift() returns removed element from array(arr) . And that is what you are looking for
