4th paragraph

currently reads: Notice that book_copy_qty returns a VARCHAR2, which is a acceptable input datatype to concatenate with text and print using PUT_LINE. Please change that to read: Notice that the result returned from book_copy_qty gets concatenated with the 'Number of copies...' string as the argument to PUT_LINE. (And, if there is space available, please add an asterisk on the word "result" and the following footnote: *The function returns a NUMBER, which runtime engine converts to a string to allow the concatenation to succeed.)
