trying to understand line 6 of List.js [if (this.props.children instanceof Array)]-----------Section 11/13

The image i’ve attached is the closest thing i can get of an explanation to why the if statement evaluates to true so that the " 's " gets attached to pluralize if needed.

Array is not in the list for instanceof but im guessing its one of the words used to evaluate if this.props.children is an Array

this is a link to the run down of instanceof
