Remove first n elements from an array using Lodash

You can use _.drop method of lodash to remove first n elements from an array. To remove first 3 elements from an array pass n value as 3.

const arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7];

//remove first element (n=1) by default
const arr1 = _.drop(arr);

//remove first 3 elements
const arr2 = _.drop(arr, 3);

//remove first 5 elements
const arr3 = _.drop(arr, 5);

Array: This argument is of array type and this contains the values that you want to remove from this array. This is a required parameter.
