JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Returning a Value from a Function

What do I do????

This creates a new variable and stores the current year in it. Now, add a statement that returns this variable from the function. (it looks like task 1 is no longer passing)

function getYear (){
  var year = new Date().getFullYear;
  return = year
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

Hey Shihab,

First, make sure to follow your getFullYear method call with parentheses.

function getYear() {
  var year = new Date().getFullYear(); // Here

Then, you'll also want to add a semi-colon at the end of year to end the statement.

function getYear() {
  var year = new Date().getFullYear();
  return year; // Here
