There are some special data types like NaN and undefined which are special data types.

3. Difference between “==” and “===”?

The basic difference between “==” checks only for equality of values but “===” used to check not only the equality of value but also its data types. In both of the case if the condition doesn’t match it will return false and true otherwise. They are both conditional operator with some differences.

4. Why do we use “use strict” at the beginning of the JS file?

This is one of the common questions that can be asked in an interview. “use strict” is a method that is used so that the code run in strict mode. It also used for handling errors at runtime and some errors that might be ignored in this mode. This an important topic to cover for interviews.

It doesn't provide validation and therefore we can potentially insert valid and broken HTML in the document and break it. It might be insecure if HTML comes from a not really controlled source and it is easy to forget some escaping or to some edge, cases to arise and create holes like XSS.

9. For what reason do we wrap the substance of the JS document into a single function block?

This is done to make a conclusion around record substance which makes a private namespace and along these lines helps in settling name conflicts among modules and libraries.
