Quick question for Regular Expresssions : Specify Upper and Lower Number of Matches

Hello! Was wondering why would /Oh{3,6} n/ not work and /Oh{3,6} no/ work for the challenge when they have the same console results?

Your code so far

let ohStr = "Ohhhhhh no";
let ohRegex = /Oh{3,6} no/; // Change this line
let result = ohRegex.test(ohStr);

**Your browser information:**Specify Upper and Lower Number of Matches

Challenge: Specify Upper and Lower Number of Matches

You’re supposed to match the “no” at the end. If you don’t do that then the challenge tests will fail.

The regexp test function returns true or false if a pattern appears in a string. /Oh{3,6} n/ is a pattern that appears in the string, so that function returns true, but it isn’t what you’re asked to do – /O/ will also return true. As will /Oh{3,6}/ or /h{3,6}/ or /n/, but they aren’t the right answers for that challenge.
