What's with recursive code i am unable to understand?

function sum(arr, n) {

  // Only change code below this line

if(n==1)

return arr[1];

return arr[n]+sum(arr,n-1);

  // Only change code above this line

}

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
