What is the Bug in the Code?

Hello everyone, I just did the code challenge. I could not find anything that made my code not run well. Could anyone please tell me what the problem is behind it? Thanks!

app.js
const years = [1989, 2015, 2000, 1999, 2013, 1973, 2012];
let century20;

// century20 should be: [1989, 2000, 1999, 1973]
// Write your code below
century20 = years.map(year => {
  if(year<=2000){
    return true;
  }else {
    return false; 
  }
});

You're using map, not filter, so right now you're getting an array of booleans depending on the value at that index in the years array. You need to replace map with filter, and you can remove the else statement.
