Sort an Array Alphabetically using the sort Method Error

Tell us what’s happening:
I have done everything I should for the test, but the test fails. I have rewritten the code in many ways, and have even copy-pasted the ‘hint solution’. I have reset the code.

What is going on?

Your code so far

function alphabeticalOrder(arr) {
  // Add your code below this line
  return arr.sort(function(a,b) {
    return a > b;
  // Add your code above this line
console.log(alphabeticalOrder(["a", "d", "c", "a", "z", "g"]));

just using sort on its own sorts in alphabetical order no need for any arguments


I got caught up by the lesson saying it is best practice to always give a callback function.

return arr.sort(function(a,b) {
   if(a > b) {
     return 1
     return -1

this is how you would do it with callback function or…

return arr.sort((a, b) => a > b ? 1 : -1);
