JavaScript Quiz – what does the async array map function return

JavaScript Quiz – what does the async array map function return

Asycn Array Map Method

In javascript, the async array map method is a map method that uses async before the map function. A simple array map method modifies the object based on condition.

But async array map method return the promise object instead of modified value. So, you need to pass async map array to promise.all to give the same result as map method.

Async Array Map Syntax Be Like –

array.map( async function(currentValue, index, array), thisValue)

JavaScript Question

In this javascript quiz, find out what does the async array map function return because map method modify the array values based on condition.

First, we declare variable numbers using the const keyword and assign an javascript array which contain only numbers.

const numbers = [1, 3, 5];

In the second step, we create an function with name addOne and add async to it.

const addOne = async (num) => num + 1;

Now, create another variable numbersPlusOne, and assign the array return from the map method.

const numbersPlusOne = numbers.map(addOne);

Finally, we are checking the value numbersPlusOne using console log.

JavaScript Quiz Test

const numbers = [1, 3, 5];
const addOne = async (num) => num + 1;
const numbersPlusOne = numbers.map(addOne);

console.log(numbersPlusOne); // output => ?

Any idea what should be the output of above code snippet ?

Answer – [Promise, Promise, Promise]

Click To Run Code


Now, you know the answer is [Promise, Promise, Promise] but why doesn’t it should provide the array with [2, 4, 6]. Let me explain.

In short, the answer is [Promise, Promise, Promise] because the async function returns the promise object. That’s why each element converted a promise object.

If you want to get the same result as map method then you have pass the result array to Promise.all(array)

At last, That’s why we get an answer “[Promise, Promise, Promise]“.
