iOS Swift 2.0 Collections and Control Flow Control Flow With Conditional Statements FizzBuzz

What is wrong with the code i made to solve the fizz buzz problem?? The compiler asks me to enter a , in the loop

func fizzBuzz(n: Int) -> String { // Enter your code between the two comment markers

for (n in 1...100 ) {

if (n % 3 == 0 ) &&  ( n % 5 == 0 ) {

return ("FizzBuzz")

} else if ( n % 3 == 0 ) {
    return ("Fizz")

} else if ( n % 5 == 0 ) {
    return ("Buzz")

}

} else // End code return ("(n)") }

fizzBuzz.swift
func fizzBuzz(n: Int) -> String {
  // Enter your code between the two comment markers

for (n in 1...100 ) {

    if (n % 3 == 0 ) &&  ( n % 5 == 0 ) {

return ("FizzBuzz")

    } else if ( n % 3 == 0 ) {
        return ("Fizz")

    } else if ( n % 5 == 0 ) {
        return ("Buzz")

    }

} else 
  // End code
  return ("\(n)")
}

Ray, it seems you put the for loop inside the function. But since it calls the function you want it outside the function:

func fizzBuzz(n: Int) -> String {  //this is the function

    if n % 3 == 0 && n % 5 == 0 {
        return "FizzBuzz"
    } else if n % 3 == 0 {
        return "Fizz"
    } else if n % 5 == 0 {
        return "Buzz"
    } else {
        return "\(n)"
    }
}

for n in 1...100 {  //this is where you call the function with a range
    fizzBuzz(n)
}

Try copying this and pasting it in a playground, and then experiment by changing the range.
To see the output in the console, at the bottom of the playground, change the call from fizzBuzz(n) to print(fizzBuzz(n))
