Return a value

Inside the function's code block, add the following line of code:

const year = new Date().getFullYear(); This creates a new variable and stores the current year in it. Now, add a statement that returns this variable from the function.

My code:

function getYear() { const year = new Date().getFullYear(); return getFullYear; }

function getYear() {
const year = new Date().getFullYear();
  return getFullYear;
}

The instructions ask you to "add a statement that returns this variable from the function". The variable they refer to is the "year" that was just created. But his code is attempting to return "getFullYear" instead, which is a method that was used to get the value and not a variable.
