Is there an error in tests

Tell us what’s happening:
It’ s not passing the last test and I don’t understand why.

When text is entered into the input element and the button is clicked, the MagicEightBall component should return a p element that contains a random element from the possibleAnswers array.

Your code so far


const inputStyle = {
width: 235,
margin: 5
}

class MagicEightBall extends React.Component {
constructor(props) {
  super(props);
  this.state = {
    userInput: '',
    randomIndex: ''
  }
  this.ask = this.ask.bind(this);
  this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
}
ask() {
  if (this.state.userInput) {
    this.setState({
      randomIndex: Math.floor(Math.random() * 20),
      userInput: ''
    });
  }
}
handleChange(event) {
  this.setState({
    userInput: event.target.value
  });
}
render() {
  const possibleAnswers = [
    'It is certain',
    'It is decidedly so',
    'Without a doubt',
    'Yes, definitely',
    'You may rely on it',
    'As I see it, yes',
    'Outlook good',
    'Yes',
    'Signs point to yes',
    'Reply hazy try again',
    'Ask again later',
    'Better not tell you now',
    'Cannot predict now',
    'Concentrate and ask again',
    'Don\'t count on it',
    'My reply is no',
    'My sources say no',
    'Most likely',
    'Outlook not so good',
    'Very doubtful'
  ];
  const answer = possibleAnswers[this.state.randomIndex] // << change code here
  
  return (
    <div>
      <input
        type="text"
        value={this.state.userInput}
        onChange={this.handleChange}
        style={inputStyle} /><br />
      <button onClick={this.ask}>
        Ask the Magic Eight Ball!
      </button><br />
      <h3>Answer:</h3>
      <p>{answer}</p>
    </div>
  );
}
};

Challenge: Use Advanced JavaScript in React Render Method

Link to the challenge:

If I copy and past your code, it passes for me. And then it fails the second time it runs.

In Firefox it passed once and now doesn’t. I’m also not getting output when I click the button. Strange.

In Chrome they pass for me as well, in Safari they don’t xD
