The instructions say "Add the closing character (hint: it's kind of like a period in a sentence) at the end of the body of the function." They want you to add the character that is optional but "best practice" to end statements with. Perhaps it would have been more clear to say "... at the end of the statement in the body of the function."

And if you're confused about the term "body", that's everything between the braces {}. So for this example, it's just that one statement.

If you try submitting an incorrect answer, it gives you this response with a more explicit clue: "Bummer: You need to add a semicolon (;) to the function body."
