# JavaScript: Create a function that gets the argument at index n. If n is negative, the nth argument from the end is returned

## JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-92 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to create a function that gets the argument at index n. If n is negative, the nth argument from the end is returned.

• Use Array.prototype.slice() to get the desired argument at index n.
• If n is negative, the nth argument from the end is returned.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define the 'nthArg' function to return a function that retrieves the nth argument passed to it.
const nthArg = n => (...args) => args.slice(n)[0];

// Create a function 'third' that retrieves the third argument passed to it.
const third = nthArg(2);
third(1, 2, 3); // Output: 3 (third argument)
third(1, 2); // Output: undefined (no third argument)

// Create a function 'last' that retrieves the last argument passed to it.
const last = nthArg(-1);
console.log(last(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)); // Output: 5 (last argument)
```
```

Output:

```5
```
