Basic JavaScript - Use Bracket Notation to Find the Last Character in a String

Tell us what’s happening:
In array we use arr.length for checking the length of array and in string we use str.length(), but in this question why we are not using bracket “()” after length…?

Your code so far

// Setup
const lastName = "Lovelace";

// Only change code below this line
const lastLetterOfLastName = lastName.length()-1; // Change this line

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Use Bracket Notation to Find the Last Character in a String

Link to the challenge:

The string and array objects can use the length property as you said. The length property is not a function though so it does not need the brackets.
