JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Objects Call and Apply

Not sure what is wrong...

'''<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <title> JavaScript Foundations: Objects</title> <style> html { background: #FAFAFA; font-family: sans-serif; } </style> </head> <body> <h1>JavaScript Foundations</h1> <h2>Objects: Call and Apply</h2> <script> var genericGreet = function(name, mood) { name = name || "you"; mood = mood || "good"; return "Hello " + name + ", my name is " + this.name + " and I am in a " + mood + " mood!"; }

  var andrew = {
    name: "Andrew"
  }

  var args1 = ["Michael", "awesome", ":)"];

  var greeting = genericGreet;
  greeting.apply(andrew, args1)
</script>

</body>

</html>'''

The only thing I did was adding the line "greeting.apply(andrew, args1)" in line 30.

I tested it using "console.log(greeting.apply(andrew, args1));" and the result is exactly the same as what the error message suggested as the correct answer. Please help.

Hi kakeiwong,

You want to apply the arguments to the genericGreet function.

var greeting = genericGreet.apply(andrew, args1);

Then the message returned will be assigned to the greeting variable.

There is a semicolon missing after greeting.apply(andrew, args1). Could that be it?
