The identical() method is being called but the variables are not identical. See if you can fix the code. Bummer! Try the strict equality operator.

  var myUndefinedVariable = null;
        var myNullVariable = null;

        if (myNullVariable == myUndefinedVariable) {
            identical();
        }

I have tried using (===) but keep getting different messages

You were right to use the strict equality operator, however they didn't want you to change the variables. leave myUndefinedVariable undefined and use the strict equality operator.
