St4 Arrays Q1: I believe question is to add/remove to saying array, not spareWords array? My error not using .shift();

saying.unshift(firstWord);
    saying.shift();

I got it. The question is so very confusing. Can it say: remove the first item of the array spareWords placing as the first item in saying array? This worked:

var firstWord = spareWords[0];
var lastWord = spareWords;
saying.unshift(firstWord);
spareWords.shift();

What you want you to do is use a method on spareWords to set firstWord to be the first word. Shift doenst take any argument, the answer would be

var firstWord = spareWords.shift()

The command for the first question dont even mention saying
