which sentence is creating a variables and storing a value in it? and why?

" if (currentScore == createBadge()"

"var currentscore = 0"

"// add collectable function additems() items = game, add. physicsGroup(); createitem(375, 300, 'coin');"

so I picked third one, they say it's wrong. But why? Isn't variables indicate numbers?

I see numbers in third one, and why it's not correct answer?

The "var" keyword creates a variable, and an equal sign after the name followed by a value (in this case, 0) stores that value in the variable.
