Day 6: JavaScript Dates | 10 Days Of JavaScript | HackerRank Solution

Hello coders, today we are going to solve Day 6: JavaScript Dates HackerRank Solution which is a part of 10 Days of JavaScript Series.

Day 6: JavaScript Dates


In this challenge, we learn about JavaScript Dates.


Given a date string, dateString, in the format MM/DD/YYYY, find and return the day name for that date. Each day name must be one of the following strings: SundayMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday, or Saturday. For example, the day name for the date 12/07/2016 is Wednesday.

Input Format

Locked stub code in the editor reads the following input from stdin:
The first line contains an integer, d, denoting the number of dates to check.
Each line i of the d subsequent lines contains a date in MM/DD/YYYY format; each date denotes some dataString that is passed to the function.


  • It is guaranteed that the input only consists of valid dates.

Output Format

The function must return a string denoting the day of the week corresponding to the date denoted by dateString.

Sample Input 0


Sample Output 0


Explanation 0

The function is called for the following d = 2 dates:

  1. The date 10/11/2009 was a Sunday, so we return Sunday.
  2. The date 11/10/2010 was a Wednesday, so we return Wednesday.

Solution – Day 6: JavaScript Dates

'use strict';


let inputString = '';
let currentLine = 0;

process.stdin.on('data', inputStdin => {
    inputString += inputStdin;

process.stdin.on('end', _ => {
    inputString = inputString.trim().split('\n').map(string => {
        return string.trim();

function readLine() {
    return inputString[currentLine++];

// The days of the week are: "Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"
function getDayName(dateString) {
    let dayName;
    // Write your code here
    let dayNames = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"];
    let date = new Date(dateString);
    dayName = dayNames[date.getDay()];
    return dayName;

function main() {
    const d = +(readLine());
    for (let i = 0; i < d; i++) {
        const date = readLine();
