Hello there.

Do you have a question?

If so, please edit your post to include it in the Tell us what’s happening section.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more information you give us, the more likely we are to be able to help.

Your function is returning a number, not the required string

A few ideas:

  • Remove return because that exits the function with that return value
  • Use break to end the switch

This is not very important, but you can use the increment operator to update the value of count i.e count++, and count–, or count+=1 and count-=1.

Out of the switch, you need some condition. This a basic example of a switch using break:

function example(val){
 case 1:
 case 2:
 return val 
/*return val>1? 'may be 2':'it is one!' (example w cond.)*/
