var Web3 = require('web3');
var web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider('https://ropsten.infura.io/v3/5db0a2fb8a8948fdbe57bb19eecb5674'));

web3.eth.getBalance('0x742d35Cc6634C0532925a3b844Bc454e4438f44e').then((res)=>console.log(web3.utils.fromWei(res,'ether')))

and the following is the error I'm getting after running the above code.

 web3.eth.getBalance(...).then is not a function

You need to use callback for getBalance function. kindly read Document .

 web3.eth.getBalance('0x742d35Cc6634C0532925a3b844Bc454e4438f44e',function(error,result){

    if(error){
       console.log(error)
    }
    else{
       console.log(result)
    }
 })

check for the Typo. web3.eth.getBalance.

while giving input wait get to autoselect then B, then web3 automatically enable the function. then it will work,
