You forgot to show your work.

Split should work, but you may have forgotten that you need to remove the punctuation first or ignore it while splitting. Here's an example with a combination of both:

var words = sentence.replace(".","").split(/,? /);

Final answer: MostUsedEnding = "t" — ContributingWords = ["that", "but", "packet", "that", "racket", "packet"]
