let intsArray = _.remove(x, function(n) {
  
    return Number.isInteger(n);
});
  
console.log('Origianal Array ', x);
console.log('Removed element array ', intsArray);

Output:

Origianal Array  [ 'a', 'b', 5.6, 'e', 'g', 10.8 ]
Removed element array  [ 1, -7, 4 ]

Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the library lodash to be installed.
