When posting code, always use Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance and retain special symbols. And for workspace projects, an even better way to share is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Now here's a couple of hints:

  • when calling a function or method, you must put parentheses after the name even if there are no arguments
  • an "else" does not need (and won't allow) a conditional expression
