Tell us what’s happening:

My code looks correct to me and is working on regex101.com, but it’s failing at 2 random intervals in the tests.

Your code so far


let haStr = "Hazzzzah";
let haRegex = /Haz{4,}ah/g; // Change this line
let result = haRegex.test(haStr);

It works for me if you remove the g!

Thanks! I guess the global flag isn’t necessary, but why is it failing with it?
