JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Review: Scope

var counter = 0; function doStuff () { _______ counter = 10;

can't figure out what goes in the blank. var, return, return var, doesn't seem to work.

1 Answer

Finish the code below so that the variable counter inside the function is only accessible inside that function:

var counter = 0;
function doStuff( ) {

var counter = 10;
