JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Functions Anonymous Functions

Hi Stage 5: Functions var anonymousFunction = function () {window.didExecute =true;}; Why is it showing error?

Either the instructions are wrong or the validation script is mistaken.

Can you provide the correct answer, please?

This question is "Set the variable 'anonymousFunction' to be an anonymous function without any code to be executed."

the problem is that you executed code in the function. remove the code in the function and you should be good to go. I hope this helps.
