Repl.it Precourse assignment help!

I am confused. It says to write my own loop and a variable is named for me which is "count" and it tells me to add 1 to loop till it gets to 10. I think my loop is correct since i didnt stray too far from the first loop in the repl.it assignment.... please help!

// ------- Please begin your work below this line: -------
function exerciseOne(){
// In this exercise, write a simple 'for loop' that starts the variable 'i' at 0 and
// increases i until it reaches 6.
// Fill in the blanks in the parentheses, and then console.log(i) inside of the fo loop
for( let i = 0; i < 6; i++){
console.log("This is i:", i)
}

// Please write your answer in the line above.
}

function exerciseTwo(){
let count = 0;
// In this exercise write your own for loop (you can look at the syntax above).
// It should loop 10 times.
// You are given a variable called: count .
// For each loop reassign count to the current value of count + 1 .
for( let count = 0; count < 10; count++){
console.log(count)
}
//Please write your answer in the line above.
return count;
}

For Exercise One, it is asking you to simply console.log(i); inside the loop. You are adding the string. That is the problem.

For Exercise Two, count is already defined, so why are you redefining it in the for loop. Use i instead. Also, you are not supposed to return or console.log anything. Like this:

function exerciseTwo() {
  let count = 0;
  for (var i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    count++;
  }
}
