The link button leads to a quiz with 5 questions. Is there a particular one you're having trouble with?

Yes the one on how to return the function for both questions.

Returning a value from a function involves placing the value (a variable name or an expression) after the keyword "return".

You may want to review the Getting Information from a Function video.

I rewatched it but i still don't understand what it want's, i am doing the return value and it still does not work.

When you say "doing the return value", what exactly are you putting in the blank?

And did you say two questions? I only see one about returning. Perhaps you should quote the whole question(s) also.

i typed return message for one of the answers and return warning for the other.

Your first answer looks like the correct response to the question I was talking about.

But I think you have misunderstood the other question. The only other question with a fill-in blank is not about returning anything, but it asks you to write the code to call a function.

Yes I am trying to do that second part but i am having trouble with calling the function.

to call a function, you write the function name followed by parentheses: "somefunction()"

thank you!
