Filtering an array of objects for a property in the objects

I the following array, I need to access all the elements in the array where "QOrder": "1" (there will always only be one element):

 

[
  {
    "@odata.etag""",
    "ItemInternalId""4e0e6adf-b08c-47b9-83e3-24440c1eaad1",
    "Q-ID""21",
    "QGroup""Std1",
    "Q""Why is question3 hard?",
    "QOrder""9"
  },
  {
    "@odata.etag""",
    "ItemInternalId""f7ff0d03-c360-413e-af41-ef720c9a40a5",
    "Q-ID""22",
    "QGroup""Std1",
    "Q""Is question1 present?",
    "QOrder""1"
  },
  {
    "@odata.etag""",
    "ItemInternalId""4f6f2703-cee6-4f96-b8de-1df90fbfcc2b",
    "Q-ID""23",
    "QGroup""Std1",
    "Q""Where is question 2?",
    "QOrder""2"
  }
]
 
I tried this code in a Filter array block, but with no luck:
item()?['QOrder'] is equal to string(1) (I also tried "... is equal to int(1)")

I don't believe I am accessing the value in QOrder correctly.
Would someone please lend a hand? I would be very appreciative; thank you.

Hi @BenDonahue ,

 

It seems that you have used Parse JSON to parse this array, you can directly use Filter array to filter items.

So, is the output of a Filter array a JSON object? It begins and ends with square brackets, [ ] , so I'm confused why a Parse JSON should be employed and why I am unable to access the data in the array with something like

body('C-FA-QForQuestionsIndex')?[1]['QOrder']
Also, thank you for your help, @v-bacao-msft .
