jQuery selector as a variable not working.

I tried to put a variable at the place of a selector but it fires automatically without click function. What is the problem? https://code.sololearn.com/Wj9IxEiIiz80/?ref=app

In the very 1st line you should use the click event instead of ready. If u use ready event the function will execute as soon as the window loads Use the click event handler to make the function execute when clicked https://code.sololearn.com/WZ7bod4Dp959/?ref=app
