Lodash - Find item index from array by searching from the end

To find the item index from an array that searches from the array end or from right to left, you can use the lodash method - _.findLastIndex.
var subjects = [
    { 'name': 'Math', 'score': 70 },
    { 'name': 'Physics', 'score': 80 },
    { 'name': 'Chemistry', 'score': 80 },
    { 'name': 'English', 'score': 90 }

//It starts searching items from end
// Find index where subject name is Chemistry
const physics_index = _.findLastIndex(subjects, function (item) {
    return == 'Physics'; 
console.log("Physics index is : " + physics_index);
// => 1

//Find Index where score is 80
const score_index = _.findLastIndex(subjects, ['score', 80]);
//=> 2
