Learn Advanced Array Methods by Building a Statistics Calculator - Step 28

Tell us what’s happening:

I am stuck at this level. I tried other things too, the code passed through the first through first two steps but its not returning null, also I checked other solutions but I’m not able to move forward.

can you guys help me out please

Your code is almost correct, the error is in this section

const Set=new Set(Object.values(counts));
  if(Set=new Set(Object.values(counts)).size===1){
    return null;
  } 
}

The instructions say that you have to create a new set inside the if statement, specifically inside the condition ( ) yet you created one outside the if statement and assigned it to variable Set, then inside the condition you reassigned the varaible Set to a another set instance and made the equality check to one
To correct this, remove the line where you created the Set variable outside the if statement and inside the condition remove the unnecessary assignment Set =
Also, remember that conditions in if-else statement are generally expressions that result in true or false value, you should never attempt to reassign a variable inside of them

Just remove the Set= at the beginning of the condition,
