JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

Problem

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in an array of number. Our function should return that first number from the array whose value and 0-based index are the same given that there exists at least one such number in the array.

const arr = [9, 2, 1, 3, 6, 5];
const findFirstSimilar = (arr = []) => {
   for(let i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
      const el = arr[i];
      if(el === i){
         return i;
      };
   };
};
console.log(findFirstSimilar(arr));
