Check For The Presence of an Element With indexOf() mine

Tell us what’s happening:

i need an explanation

Your code so far

function quickCheck(arr, elem) {
  // change code below this line
if (arr.indexOf(elem)>0){// why does d arr has to be greater than zero
  return true;
} else{
  return false;
  // change code above this line

// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(quickCheck(['squash', 'onions', 'shallots'], 'mushrooms'));

Link to the challenge:

Calling indexOf method to an array looks at every element in its array from the beginning with a given parameter (elem). Then it compares each value to see if it’s greater than 0 if then true or else false.

Because indexOf returns -1 if the element is not found, a positive number returned means that the element was found (at that positive number as the index)

quickCheck(['squash', 'onions', 'shallots'], 'squash');

Be careful, this return false even if it should return true
Remember that the item at first position is at index 0
