     var = should not be used in modern (2016+) Java script.

     var;   was the precursor to let  and const , found only in pre 2016 Js code.

A declaration of   let  declares a  set of Variables that can be altered.

A declaration of   const  declares a set of Variables that should not be altered.

var is pre 2016 JS update and was used before the introduction of   let  and  const
