You haven't provided us with any examples or code so we can't diagnose the issue. We need to be able to see what you've written in order to be able to provide help.

Look at the error message. it is telling you that you are trying to call split on a null object. So you need to examine your code and find out why the object reference at that line is null.

You haven’t supplied us with any code for your problem.

I assume you want to count the number of words in a string

You can use the ".length" property of arrays to find how big it is.

var myString = "How are you doing today?";
var words = myString.split(" ");
