Basic JavaScript - Stand in Line

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here. The code for the first 2 nextInLine passes. The rest do not, and I do not know why. I found the instructions for this challenge to be extrremely confusing. I’m probably making something simple too complex.

Your code so far

function nextInLine(arr, item) {
  // Only change code below this line
   return item;
    return item;
    return item;
    return item;
    return item;
    nextInLine(testArr, 10);
    return item;
  // Only change code above this line

// Setup
let 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:

You should not be calling the function inside of the function here.

Lets look here. Why are you pushing 6?

What are you doing with the result from shift?

Thanks, that was the focus I needed. It works now.
