Wrong syntax. Its not allowed to put "string" as a parameter. Will throw this error:

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string

function returnValue(myParameter){
  return myParameter;


Now, this is not in the mission but If you want you can send argument to this function like this (function executed):

returnValue('I have Wings');


Thank You!

I finally solved it on my own.
