Mini Linter Project - Assistance Needed

Mini Linter Project

Hello, I need some help with the mini linter project, step 3.
This is my code so far.

let story = 'Last weekend, I took literally the most beautiful bike ride of my life. The route is called "The 9W to Nyack" and it actually stretches all the way from Riverside Park in Manhattan to South Nyack, New Jersey. It\'s really an adventure from beginning to end! It is a 48 mile loop and it basically took me an entire day. I stopped at Riverbank State Park to take some extremely artsy photos. It was a short stop, though, because I had a really long way left to go. After a quick photo op at the very popular Little Red Lighthouse, I began my trek across the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey.  The GW is actually very long - 4,760 feet! I was already very tired by the time I got to the other side.  An hour later, I reached Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary, an extremely beautiful park along the coast of the Hudson.  Something that was very surprising to me was that near the end of the route you actually cross back into New York! At this point, you are very close to the end.';

let overusedWords = ['really', 'very', 'basically'];

let unnecessaryWords = ['extremely', 'literally', 'actually' ];

let storyWords = story.split(' ');

const func = function(b) {
  return b;
const betterWords = storyWords.filter(function(a) {
  if (a !== unnecessaryWords.forEach(func)) {
    return a;


It logs the whole storyWords array instead. What’s wrong?

Hi there.

.filter() removes any words which do not pass the test condition.

In your case, everything is meeting your criteria a !== unnecessaryWords.forEach(func)) and so your test function is returning the value of a for each item being passed to filter.

Every value of a is truthy, so nothing is removed.

To fix it, you’ll need to come up with a different way of evaluating the contents of storyWords. :slight_smile:
