Now, you know the answer is 0. But why because it is just an array-like object not array. And even it’s not passed to function. Let me explain

So first, arguments are always accessible in function which contains all parameters.

arguments is an array-like object which has some properties like length, callee and arguments[@@iterator]

As no parameter is passed to function which you can clearly see and arguments hold the function parameter as an element.

At last, That’s why we get an answer “0“.
