Trapped in Regex Hell -Positive and Negative Lookahead

Tell us what’s happening:
I don’t understand why I need the “\D*” section of line 2 (let pwRegex…)

In my mind, this second positive lookahead should only be looking for 2 digits, ie…

let pwRegex = /(?=\w{5,})(?=\d{2})/i;

But then it says it doesn’t match “bana12”. bana12 has 5 or more alphanumeric characters, and it has 2 consecutive digits.

Help me understand what I’m clearly missing?? :sunny:

Your code so far

let sampleWord = "astronaut";
let pwRegex = /(?=\w{5,})(?=\D*\d{2})/i; // Change this line
let result = pwRegex.test(sampleWord);

Link to the challenge:

I replaced the \D* with \w*

I think this is smarter because \D* would preclude passwords from starting with numbers, which was not specified as part of the prompt.
