function getDay() { return "Monday"; alert("Calculating day"); return "Friday"; }

var dayOfWeek = getDay();

When the function go up to the <return "Monday";> in that case, the rest of the function are ignored, and the function above is similar to < function getDay() { return "Monday"; }

is that correct?

1 Answer

Right. the rest of the lines after return are not reachable.
