Wht=y did we have to use return instead of case?

please guys why did we have to use return here instead of case???

  **Your code so far**

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

// Only change code above this line
return answer;

Challenge: Selecting from Many Options with Switch Statements

I don’t understand the question. You used both return and case.

i mean why did we have to use return???

You don’t have to use your last return statement (return answer). You could either return from the switch statement, or just re-assign the answer variable in the switch and return it at the bottom.

If you don’t want to use return in the switch, change every occurrence of return to answer =

There are different places that you can put return statements, but you need to return a value because that’s a requirement for three function.
