Some functions allow multiple parameters, but we can't pass them directly. ES5 has apply() method to that. ES6 provides spread operator. Lets see them here

apply() method syntax

fun.apply(thisArg, [argsArray])
thisArg - context of the function. if code in non strict mode, null and undefined will be replaced by  global object. 
argsArray - its an array

Using ES5 apply method

Observe below code. Here we are finding maximum number in array of numbers. We don't need any context here to apply, so we can pass null or undefined
Math.max.apply(null, [1, -5, 10, 8])

Observe below code. This is for pushing one array elements to another array
var arr1 = ['a', 'b'];
var arr2 = ['c', 'd'];

arr1.push.apply(arr1, arr2);
// arr1 is now ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

Using ES6

Use spread operator to pass array as parameter values
var maxVal = Math.max(...[-1, 5, 11, 3]);
console.log(maxVal);

Below code is for adding array elements into another array
const arr1 = ['a', 'b'];
const arr2 = ['c', 'd'];

arr1.push(...arr2);
console.log(arr1);
