Im not quite sure what this is asking of me. "Call the function by giving an age in the space for a parameter."

if anyone can please help

script.js
function random_age(age) {
  Math.floor(Math.random() * age);
}
random_age();

It is just asking you to pass in an age when you call the function. The function accepts age as a parameter, so you just need to add the argument for age when calling random_age. Below I used 26 as the argument.

function random_age(age) {
  Math.floor(Math.random() * age);
}
random_age(26);
