Specify Upper and Lower Number of Matches - Regex

Tell us what’s happening:

I have used this solution on other regex sites where i can test it and it passes. not sure how it can be wrong.

It’s matching:

  • character ‘o’
  • strings with 3-6 character ‘h’
  • followed by whitespace and the word ‘no’
    *flags are set to global and case insensitive

Here’s my solution from another regex site.


Your code so far

let ohStr = "Ohhh no";
let ohRegex = /oh{3,6}\sno/gi; // Change this line
let result = ohRegex.test(ohStr);

No reply needed. I figured it out. For whatever reason the engine doesn’t want the global (g) flag set. Once i removed that it passed. Kinda weird given it passes some of the tests with it set. If the global flag was the issue wouldn’t it pass none instead of some?
