I need help with this js code. I don't see anything wrong

Can someone help me with this?

js/app.js
//Problem: It look gross in smaller browser widths and small devices
//Solution: To hide the text links and swap them out with a more appropriate navigation
``` javascript
//Create a select and append to #menu
var $select = $("<select></select>");
$("#menu").append($select);

//Cycle over menu links
$("#menu a").each(function() {
  var $anchor = $(this);
}

//Create an option //option's value is the href //option's text is the text of link //append option to select

//Create button //Bind click to button //Go to select's location //Modify CSS to hide links on small width and show button and select //Also hides select and button on larger width and show's links //Deal with selected options depending on current page

:point_right: It looks like you're just missing the closing parenthesis for the .each method.

It should follow the closing brace of the anonymous function.

Optionally (but a "best practice"), you could place a semicolon after that closing parenthesis.
