Looping through an array with objects

I have an object that has several key/values and it’s being passed as an argument to my function’s parameter as an array.

I need that function to iterate through said array that has objects in its indexes and it also needs to check if any of the array’s indexes key/values pairs have a string.

If there are strings, have those key/value pairs with strings be inside a new array that will be used to return it to the function.

The function’s returned value will be tested in a comparison in a TDD were an actual value is compared with an expected value.

In this case an array with an object with string values.

function test(actual, expected) {
   if (JSON.stringify(actual) === JSON.stringify(expected)) {
     console.log("Yay! Test PASSED.");
   } else {
     console.error("Test FAILED. Keep trying!");
     console.log("    actual: ", actual);
     console.log("  expected: ", expected);

//The objects

const obj1 = { a: "A" };
const obj2 = { a: "A", b: 2 };
const obj3 = { a: "A", b: 2, c: "C", d: true };
const obj4 = { a: "A", c: "C" };

//My solution up to now
function filterArrayForStrings(arrayOfObjects){
 let newArrayWithObjects = [];
 for(const key in arrayOfObjects){
   if(typeof arrayOfObjects[key] === 'string'){
 return newArrayWithObjects;

test(filterArrayForStrings([obj1]), [obj1]);
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
