let s="Hello, wolld";function removeLast(str, c){
const arr=s.split(c);

const newString=arr.reduce((a, v, i, r)=>{
if( i === (r.length-1)){
return a+v;

if( i === (r.length-2)){
return a+v;

return a+v+c;

return newString;}console.log(removeLast(s, 'l'));
  1. splice method
  2. join
let s="Hello, wolld";function removeLast(str, c){
let arr=s.split('');
let lastIndex, newArr, newStr;

for(let i=0; i<arr.length;i++){
let tmp=arr[i];


arr.splice(lastIndex, 1);
return newStr;}console.log(removeLast(s, 'l'))
