I am still quite new to this, but I think you need to at least put a = after result. I tried your code with the following line: let result = ''; And then it did work. Hope this helps :)

There's a few issues here:

  • the instructions say to "Create a function named max", but this one is named "nature"
  • the keyword "let" should not begin with a capital letter
  • the parameter names should not be converted into strings with quotes or apostrophes
  • for task 1 you only need to define the function, you don't need to call it
