Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

 

function chainToSwitch(val) {
var answer = "";
// Only change code below this line
switch (val) {
case "bob":
answer = "Marley";
break;
case 42:
answer = "The Answer";
break;
case 1:
answer = "There is no #1";
break;
case 99:
answer = "Missed me by this much!"; 
break; 
case "John":
answer = "";
break;
case 156:
answer = ""; 
break;
default:
answer = "Ate Nine";
}

 
chainToSwitch("bob");
chainToSwitch(42);
chainToSwitch(1);
chainToSwitch(99);
chainToSwitch(7);
chainToSwitch("jhon");
chainToSwitch(156);
}

Your function isn’t returning the value of answer.

Hey @krishnanath,
as @kevcomedia mentioned you aren’t returning a value. Also, I think you would have noticed this if your code would have been more readable. Indent your code like this:

function chainToSwitch(val) {
   var answer = "";
   // Only change code below this line
   switch (val) {
         case "bob":
               answer = "Marley";
               break;
         case 42:
             answer = "The Answer";
             break;
         case 1:
             answer = "There is no #1";
             break;
        case 99:
           answer = "Missed me by this much!"; 
           break; 
        case "John":
            answer = "";
            break;
        case 156:
           answer = ""; 
           break;
        default:
           answer = "Ate Nine";
}

return answer;
} // end of function

@krishnanath
Be careful you also mispelled john in your function call as “jhon”, no cap to start and the letters are out of order.
