Trying to figure out switch statements. Help plssss

Tell us what’s happening:
Trying to figure out why my code isn’t returning the correct values. Been trying to figure out where I’ve gone wrong but I’m stumped :confused:

Your code so far


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


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

caseInSwitch(1);

My console is outputting “alpha” 3 times for whatever reason

your function needs to return the value, not just print it, you have an answer variable ready to use
