Replacing If Else Chains with Switch_

Tell us what’s happening:

Hi can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

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 7:
      answer = "Ate Nine";
      break;
  }
  
  // Only change code above this line  
  return answer;  
}

// Change this value to test
chainToSwitch(7);

It’s switch not Switch.
You need to insert a matching closing curly bracket.
You need to have a default case and its answer should be empty strings.

Good luck!
