Stuck on Adding a Default Option in Switch Statements

So, I’ve got the default statement working, but my switch cases for a, b and c don’t return the strings they should. I’ve set answer as described in the lesson, but it doesn’t mention returning the strings so I’m a bit confused.

function switchOfStuff(val) {
let answer = "";
// Only change code below this line
switch(answer){
case "a": answer = "apple";
break;
case "b": answer = "bird";
break;
case "c": answer = "cat";
break;
default: answer = "stuff";
}

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

switchOfStuff(1);

…Blimey, that feels really obvious on second glance. Thanks for pointing that out. :sweat_smile:

We’ve all been there :slight_smile:
