Isnt this /^(\s+)|(\s)$/ equal to /^\s+|\s+$/g

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
Isnt this /^(\s+)|(\s+)$/ equal to this /^\s+|\s+$/g ?

I am asking because the problem doesn’t accept this /^(\s+)|(\s)$/ as the answer

Your code so far


let hello = "   Hello, World!  ";
let wsRegex = /^(\s+)|(\s+)$/; // Change this line
let result = hello.replace(wsRegex, ""); // Change this line
console.log(result);

Yes, those are the same but I think your problem is that you forgot the global flag.
