I need explanation for this piece of code please

Tell us what’s happening:
Here indexOf method is used as arr[i].indexOf(elem) == -1, my question is that the arr Array is a nested array so how can we use arr[i].indexOf(elem) == -1 on the outer array directly, and not going to the nested array first and then checking the indexOf method on that? .

  **Your code so far**

function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
let newArr = [];
// Only change code below this line
for(let i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
    if (arr[i].indexOf(elem) == -1) {
// Only change code above this line
return newArr;

console.log(filteredArray([[3, 2, 3], [1, 6, 3], [3, 13, 26], [19, 3, 9]], 3));

IndexOf is not used on arr, it is used on arr[i], which is the inner array
