rollno : 12 };

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Write a JavaScript program to get the length of a JavaScript object.</title>

JavaScript Code:

//Write a JavaScript program to get the length of a JavaScript object.

Object.objsize = function(Myobj) {
    var osize = 0, key;
    for (key in Myobj) {
        if (Myobj.hasOwnProperty(key)) osize++;
    return osize;

var student = { 
name : "David Rayy", 
sclass : "VI", 
rollno : 12 };

var objsize = Object.objsize(student);
console.log('Size of the current object : '+objsize);

Sample Output:

Size of the current object : 3

How to remove a specific item from an array?

Find the index of the array element you want to remove using indexOf, and then remove that index with splice.

The splice() method changes the contents of an array by removing existing elements and/or adding new elements.

const array = [2, 5, 9];


const index = array.indexOf(5);
if (index > -1) {
  array.splice(index, 1);

// array = [2, 9]

The second parameter of splice is the number of elements to remove. Note that splice modifies the array in place and returns a new array containing the elements that have been removed.

For the reason of completeness, here are functions. The first function removes only a single occurrence (i.e. removing the first match of 5 from [2,5,9,1,5,8,5]), while the second function removes all occurrences:

function removeItemOnce(arr, value) {
  var index = arr.indexOf(value);
  if (index > -1) {
    arr.splice(index, 1);
  return arr;

function removeItemAll(arr, value) {
  var i = 0;
  while (i < arr.length) {
    if (arr[i] === value) {
      arr.splice(i, 1);
    } else {
  return arr;
console.log(removeItemOnce([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
console.log(removeItemAll([2,5,9,1,5,8,5], 5))
