   [ 4, [2], 8, [1,3], 2 ],

   1,
   8
];
const findNestedSum = (arr) => {
   let sum = 0;
   for(let len = 0; len < arr.length; len++){
      sum += Array.isArray(arr[len]) ? findNestedSum(arr[len]) :
      arr[len];
   };
   return sum;
};
console.log(findNestedSum(arr));

Output

The output in the console will be −
