I am not sure why it is not passing. It says my task 1 is failed. But when I check, the task 1 is passing.

I am trying to store the result of the function in a variable. But it fails.

function returnValue(myValue)

  return myValue;
var echo = function returnValue(myValue);
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

When you pass a function to a variable you don't have to use the "function" keyword. Like this:

function returnValue(arg){ return arg; }

var echo = returnValue("Hello World");

And remember you're passing a String to the function parameter. Hope it can help you :)
