This is embarrassing that this is not passing. please help

I do not get what is wrong here... It must be something I'm missing.

script.js
var data = ["3", "4", "5"];
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Loops</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

The problem is not the array itself, but what you have placed in it. When you put quotes around a value it will be treated as a string, which is different from a number (even if the string contains a number), in order to represent a number you just have to type it in without enclosing it in anything. Like this:

var data = [3, 4, 5];
