Challenge: Regular Expressions - Check For Mixed Grouping of Characters

Link to the challenge:

this code is essentially 3 lines.
I assume you understand the first and 3rd lines.
So that means you need help understanding the pattern being used?
You can use this tool to help you with that

Switch the flavor in the left hand side menu to ECMAScript and then paste the regular expression in the space provided.
This tool will help you understand the parts of the pattern and you can also test the pattern with different strings.
