JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Arrays Methods: Part 1

Challenge task 1 of 4

On line 18, use a method on the 'spareWords' to set 'firstWord' to be first word of the 'spareWords' array whilst simultaneously removing it from the beginning of the array.

By just doing: var firstWord = spareWords.shift(); Which is the apparent right answer, 'firstWord' was never even added, as it shoudl have using unshift.

I think you misunderstood the question. I understood the question as: take the first word from spareWords, and add that word to the variable firstWord whilst simultaneously removing it from the beginning of the array spareWords.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to answer!
