Local Scope and Functions5

Tell us what’s happening:

Ok not sure what the problem here is? I tried taking out the console.log lines.

Your code so far


function myLocalScope() {
  'use strict'; // you shouldn't need to edit this line
  
  var myVar = "foo";

  console.log(myVar);
}
myLocalScope();

// Run and check the console
// myVar is not defined outside of myLocalScope
console.log(myVar);

// Now remove the console log line to pass the test

the test is not expecting you to assign “foo” to the variable.

just declare myVar and then when you see the error that myVar is not found , delete the console.log statement and submit

Per the second part of the instructions, you are supposed to comment out the console.log outside the function.

var myVar

(myVar);

This is still wrong?

Remove the line with the brackets (myVar)
And add a semicolon at the end of the first line.
