JavaScript Asynchronous Programming with JavaScript Asynchronous JavaScript with Callbacks Callback Functions Review

I don't understand what this question wants.

The question is:

Set the makeMeal function to invoke the callback function passed to it.

function makeMeal(meal, cb) { alert(Preparing ${meal}.); ___; }

makeMeal('lunch', () => { alert('Finished the meal!'); });

Under the alert I have no idea what this question wants. It's asking to invoke the callback function passed to it, so why doesn't cb(); suffice as an answer? The question also gives no help when I answer it wrong. I'd appreciate anyone's help here so I can move on. Thank you.

cb(); should be the correct answer. Are you adding a semi-colon by chance (if so, it's already there).
