Function in if

importance: 5

Look at the code. What will be the result of the call at the last line?

let phrase = "Hello";

if (true) {
  let user = "John";

  function sayHi() {
    alert(`${phrase}, ${user}`);


The result is an error.

The function sayHi is declared inside the if, so it only lives inside it. There is no sayHi outside.
