switch uses strict comparison (like ===) for checking the cases against the test value. Here the test value is expected to be a number, but the cases are all strings.

You’re also missing a } after the last break

Also, just a heads up to save you some typing, the return statement already breaks the flow of logic, so adding a break; statement below it is redundant, and the breaks will never be reached anyway.
