Except for the spaces after the def's at the top (are those legal?), it should
work as written.

determine(funcA) results in 'f' being bound to 'funcA'; then 't = f()' results
in 'funcA' being called, and its resulting being bound to 't'; 'determine'
returns that result, and it's bound to 'n'.  Is that not what you wanted?
