Hello there.

Do you have a question?

If so, please edit your post to include it in the Tell us what’s happening section.

The more information you give us, the more likely we are to be able to help.


kindly assist me in this topic because i didnt understand the question literally.

What question? You don’t understand the information in the course?

Variables which are declared within a function, as well as the function parameters have local scope. That means, they are only visible within that function.

This means if, in your program, you declare const number = 1, the variable number will be accessible from anywhere in your code.

If you do something like declare function numbercounter(), and you declare const number = 1 inside the function, only this function will ever be able to interact with that variable.
