Create a new function named max which accepts two numbers as arguments (you can name the arguments, whatever you would like). The function should return the larger of the two numbers.

HINT: You'll need to use a conditional statement to test the 2 parameters to see which is the larger of the two.

script.js
function max(n1 , n2){
  var n1 = prompt("Enter n1");
  var n2 = prompt("Eneter n2");

  If (parseInt(n1) > parseInt(n2){
      alert



}

Don't worry bhupendra rana

Programming is meant to be taken in a passive manner, not in a rushing manner. Take as many breaks as you need and ask as many questions as you want. We're always here to help! :smile:

Hi, bhupendra rana

For this quiz, you don't need to overthink the question. I'll show you step by step on what to do.

First it's asking to create a function named max that accepts two numbers as arguments

function max(n1, n2) {

}

and finally it's asking to use a conditional statement to output the largest number

function max(n1, n2) {
    if(n1 > n2) { //if variable n1 is larger than variable n2
        return n1; //return or give me this variable/number back.
    } else {  //if not
        return n2  //return me this variable
    }
}
