Help with Javascript: check for mixing grouping of characters

Tell us what’s happening:
Please why is my code not working?
I keep getting this errors:
Your regex " myRegex" should return “true” for the string “Franklin D. Roosevelt”
Your result should return “true.”

   **Your code so far**

let myString = "Eleanor Roosevelt";
let myRegex = /Ele(an)or | Fr(an)klin.*Roosevelt/; // Change this line
// Change this line
// After passing the challenge experiment with myString and see how the grouping works

Challenge: Check For Mixed Grouping of Characters

Hi @shagariboy ,

There is a space before Franklin in your regex.

oh wee!! I works.
I still don’t get why the “space” made the difference.

It checks for the space before ‘Franklin’ in myString which doesn’t exist and hence returns false.
