• Extra Task for Tester: Problem

Question related to mission The Most Frequent


Dear fellow mission solvers.

I just had a very good run today and learned quite a lot - until I came to this mission, which seems to have a hidden extra step at the tester, which returns my function as null! I don't get it why, because when I test it in VS code and here at the checkio code ditor everything works out, and at the checkout the two exercises get accepted.

Here is my attempt:

function mostFrequent(a) {

let mf = 1;
let m = 0;
let item;
for (let i = 0; i < a.length; i++) {

    for (let j=i; j < a.length; j++) {

            if (a[i] == a[j]) {

             m++; }

            if (mf <  m) {

              mf = m; 
              item = a[i];


        return item;

Maybe some of you know something about that third test which is invisible?
