What is wrong with this code?

def parse_answer(answer, kind="string") if kind == "number" answer.to_i end return answer end

ask.rb
def parse_answer(answer, kind="string")
  if kind == "number"
    answer.to_i
  end
  return answer
end

Your code only returns a value outside the if loop you set for kind == "number". Add return to answer.to_i for your code to get it to return the correct value within the loop.

You need to add your return statement before the ends.

def parse_answer(a, k="string" ) if k == "number" a.to_i returns a end end
