Removing Names

When we can access , the value of "input" variable inside the function like li.textContent = input.value , is it necessary to increase the complexity by giving parameter to the function ?

Hello Aakash, What you wrote will limit the reusability of the function. Functions in general are created to be used more than once, so for example our function in that example called createLI(text) and by removing its parameter and alter this line of code li.textContent = text; inside it to be li.textContent =input.value; then you can't use this function in other places to create an li element in general as its name implies, it will be just dedicated to create li element that its value comes from the input.
