Question about passing event to the function $(.'spoiler").on (click,button,function(event/e/)

I have a question about passing event to the function: $(.'spoiler").on (click, button, function(event/e/) how can we call the event passed to the function by any name not just event. Can someone explain to me

It's a parameter for an anonymous function you are writing, so you can call it whatever you like, but the object that is passed to the function as the first argument is a jQuery Event Object, so it is generally helpful to name it something descriptive of what you're expecting there.
