const array = [ 1, [2 , [3 , 4 , [5 , 6 ] ]]] array.flat(Infinity); The output will be 1 2 3 4 5 6. if we use Infinity it will recursively convert to a flat list.



We have use Object.entries in many cases. It will return an array from an object. Similarly, we can use the Object.fromEntries that will return the object from an array.
