what is the purpose of window.

Is there any use/need/benefit from attaching window. before a global variable?

In this first link it shows window.carName can be used, but removing window. from carName gives the same result, so is there ever any need for attaching window. at the beginning of global variables?

This second link shows by using let instead of var for the variable creation window.carName is undefined yet it says in the green comments // code here can use window.carName. I assume that is a typing error and should read // code here can not use window.carName?

Good Catch! Whichever page you've got these try-its from, there's a button at the bottom of the page that says "Submit Error" which will alert the w3school staff to fix it. Just make sure you include the details you've specified here.
