let humanScore = 0;

let computerScore = 0;

let currentRoundNumber = 1;

// Write your code below:

const generateTarget = function(){

return Math.floor(Math.random()*9);


const compareGuess = function (humanGuess, computerGuess,targetGuess){

if((Math.abs( humanGuess - targetGuess )) < (Math.abs(computerGuess - targetGuess))){

return true;


else if ((Math.abs( humanGuess - targetGuess )) > (Math.abs(computerGuess - targetGuess)))

return false;

else if((Math.abs( humanGuess - targetGuess )) === (Math.abs(computerGuess - targetGuess))){

return true;



return invalid;



const updateScore = function(){


humanScore += 1


else if(compareGuess === false){

computerScore += 1


currentRoundNumber += 1



console.log(humanScore); // To confirm that this value increased by 1


console.log(computerScore); // To confirm that this value increased by 1

This is my code and i can’t pass task 7. Can you help me please thanks again.

Hello! Could you post any errors you’re getting, please? If you’re not getting errors, but undesirable behaviour, how so? Also, please see this guide on formatting code in posts.

Result i got using this code is not an error. I make a guess but i can’t make guess. That process doesn’t work.

Sorry, I don’t quite understand what’s happening (or rather not happening). Also, is there more code than the code that you’ve just shared?

I looked at the instructions for this project and if mine are not out-of-date …

you’re missing a parameter for the updateScore function ( - the parameter should be winner),

like this:
const updateScore = function(winner){

Also, the if-statement and else-if statement in that function should check whether winner is the string 'human' or 'computer' instead of checking whether compareGuess is true or false.
(Also, compareGuess was a function, not a boolean variable that stores true or false.)

Less importantly,
in a previous function, you have return invalid;
but there’s no variable named invalid,
so maybe that should be undefined or maybe false.

Also, please use the code formatting stuff (meaning the </> button) when you post code to make it easier to read.
