Adding a default option in Switch statements - Stuck!

Adding a default option in Switch statements - Stuck!

Tell us what’s happening:
I have tried different “Solutions” via the forums. None of them work for me. I can get the right output for each of the variables (‘a’, ‘b’, etc), but it says that from ‘c’ on doesn’t work even though it seems to work fine. Also, I am following the way that one person said worked for them even though that is not how this site says Switch statements work: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_switch.asp (As a side note, the w3schools answer doesn’t work either.) This is frustrating. Please help.

Your code so far

function switchOfStuff(val) {
  var answer = "";
  switch (val) {
    case 'a':
      answer = "apple";
    break;
    case 'b':
      answer = "bird";
    break;
    case 'c':
      answer = "Cat";
    break;
    default: 
      answer = "Stuff";
  }
  return answer;  
}

// Change this value to test
switchOfStuff('c');

Hi Jowe11,

The test is case sensitive and it accepts only small letters, ie: “cat” and “stuff”.

Hope this helps!

Wow! I feel foolish for such a mistake. I’m sorry y’all. Thank you for your help. I have to be more attentive to details.
