Possible Test Error for Reduce Function Use

Tell us what’s happening:
I was able to solve the challenge using the code below, but when I submit I am not able to pass due to the tests not recognizing that I use a reduce function. The code below fails the ‘Your code should use the reduce method’ test.

Your code so far


The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

  var averageRating = watchList.filter(item => item.Director === "Christopher Nolan")  
    .map(item => parseFloat(item.imdbRating))
    .reduce((sum, imdbRating) => (sum + imdbRating))
    / watchList.filter(item => item.Director === "Christopher Nolan").length;

Challenge: Use the reduce Method to Analyze Data

Link to the challenge:

You are not crazy, there is a known bug. You have chained your methods - which is good. But you have put each chained method on a new line. Normally, that can be a good thing, but the test is broken and can’t parse those. You need to put them all on the same line. The editor automatically wrapping long lines is fine, but you can’t add in line spaces.

Again, what you did makes sense to me, but the test is defective.

When I fix that, your code passes for me.

Many thanks for the quick reply! Do you have a link to the bug report? I’m new to learning programming but would be happy to follow along as a learning exercise!

I believe that it is being discussed here: Stacked Methods Do Not Pass with removeJSComments · Issue #41951 · freeCodeCamp/freeCodeCamp · GitHub
