Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 28

Tell us what’s happening:

I don’t know why my code is not taking. The output works as expected

Your code so far

const selectionSort = (array) => {
  for (let i = 0; i < array.length; i++) {
    let minIndex = i;
  
    for (let j = i + 1; j < array.length; j++) {
      console.log(array, array[i], array[j], array[minIndex]);
      if (array[j] < array[minIndex]) {
        minIndex = j;
        
      }
      
    }
    
    const temp = array[i];
    array[i] = array[minIndex];
    array[minIndex] = temp;
    
  }
  return array;
  
}```

Why did you change this code line in the challenge?

Oh, shoot, that explains it. I wanted to see array[i] in addition to the other items. Thank you!
