Sahmad, You will get the uncaught syntax error if you try assigning different values to the same variable using let. The let keyword protects you from overriding variable assignments where the var keyword did not. So the answer to the quiz question would be the

let numberToGuess = 5;
let numberToGuess = 20;
console.log(numberToGuess);

hope this helps...

Thank you!
