Hi Everyone,
May I know where I am going wrong?

Your code so far

function palindrome(str) {
  var newStr = str.toLowerCase().replace(/[\W_]/g, "");
  var array = [];
  var newArray = [];
  array = newStr.split("");
  newArray = array.reverse("").join("");
  if (newArray == str){
     return true;
}
  else {
    return false;
  }
  
}



palindrome("eye");

You’re comparing newArray, which is actually a string, to the original input. Instead, you want to compare it to newStr.

Thank you for the reply. But its working fine for the “eye” but it is showing false when “_eye”. So there is problem in removing special characters or space or alphanumeric value.


#4

It works fine for “eye”, because if str is “eye” and newArray is the reverse string of “eye”, so they are equal. You are comparing the wrong variables. Do as @sa-mm suggested and you will pass the challenge.
