freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: Modify an Array Stored in an Object

Modify an Array Stored in an Object


Problem Explanation

  • The function can be written in just two lines of code.
  • The first line should just use the push() function to add the friendparameter to the array found in user.data.friend. The second line will return the modified array.
  • Remember that user must be referenced with the first parameter given to the addFriend() function.
