Need some clarification here plz!

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
So I did this exercise after watching a video explaining it and while I understood the idea of the exercise I read on the hint section that people have been saying that the instructions are unclear as to how to do this exercise. I am wondering where in the practice I need to apply the === property since that is part of the exercise.

Thank you guys for the help! I really appreciate it :slight_smile: you are all awesome! <3

  **Your code so far**

function caseInSwitch(val) {
var answer = "";
// Only change code below this line
switch (val) {
case 1:
answer = "alpha";
case 2:
answer = "beta";
case 3:
answer = "gamma";
case 4:
answer = "delta";

// Only change code above this line
return answer;

Challenge: Selecting from Many Options with Switch Statements

Hi @Sherif123 !

You don’t need to use the === operator.
The way switch statements work is that it will use strict comparision (===) for the cases and the expression here

For example, when I call the function here, the number 1 matches case 1.

But if I changed the function call to this,


then none of the cases would match because ‘1’ is not the same as 1.
One is a string while the other is a number.

Here are the docs going into the definition of switch statements

Hope that is clear!
