Hi @bl535141

The instructions did not ask you to modify the middle value.
Please restore this line of code.

The last part of the instructions:

If it’s odd, return the number at the middle index – you’ll need to round the middle value up.

The error message will say:

If the ternary is false, you should return the value of sorted at the middle index. Use Math.ceil() to round the middle value up.

The keyword is round up the middle value. Your code is rounding up the whole expression.

Happy coding
