function getMax(no1, no2) { // rename function to max
  return larger; // remove this (return breaks out of function)
   if (no1 ==='larger') // replace this condition with a condition to check that no1 is greater than no2 (i.e. >)
     return true; // return no1
   } else {
     return false; // return no2
} // add a closing curly brace for function definition
