Tell us what’s happening:
…i need help …

Your code so far


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

 return answer;
}

caseInSwitch(val);
// Only change code above this line

Challenge: Selecting from Many Options with Switch Statements

Link to the challenge:

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

// Only change code above this line
 return answer;
}

caseInSwitch(4);

@MM-HASAN kindly come again am not getting you.

You have to set a value you want to use in your function in your function call. So instead of caseInSwitch(val), you can use caseInSwitch(1) or something similar. Right now in the global scope there is no val variable for the function to use.

Hey @matey1979!

You are really close. The switch statement is correct. The problem is you started changing things your were not supposed to change.

Do not touch this part from the original problem. Leave it alone.

  // Only change code above this line
  return answer;
}

caseInSwitch(1);

If you only have your switch statement in between these comments then the test will pass

// Only change code below this line
//put switch statement here. 
// Only change code above this line

Hope that helps!

Hi @MM-HASAN!

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

You can post solutions that invite discussion (like asking how the solution works, or asking about certain parts of the solution). But please don’t just post your solution for the sake of sharing it.
If you post a full passing solution to a challenge and have questions about it, please surround it with [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags on the line above and below your solution code.
