Regex wildcard period

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

The solution shows /.un/ and my code is /un./ and still passes. Does the period placement matter?

Your code so far

let exampleStr = "Let's have fun with regular expressions!";
let unRegex = /un./; // Change this line
let result = unRegex.test(exampleStr);

Challenge: Match Anything with Wildcard Period

Link to the challenge:

Yes it does. Your code passes because tests are written in such way that they only test if there is a . and if your regex matches anything (or doesn’t for the last two tests). So I’d say that tests should be updated (freeCodeCamp/ at main · freeCodeCamp/freeCodeCamp · GitHub)
