<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
Gives me the error: “SyntaxError: Unexpected token var”

```

var compare = function (choice1, choice2) {
if(choice1 === choice2) {
return(“The result is a tie!”)
}
else if(choice1 === “rock”) {
if(choice2 === “scissors”) {
return(“rock wins”)
}
else {
return(“paper wins”)
}
}
else if(choice1 === “paper”) {
if(choice2 === “rock”) {
return(“paper wins”)
}
else {
return(“scissors wins”)
}
}
}

@ec0re,
You will have to give us the full code you are using…

Sorry,




-/*var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
	computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
	computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);*/

var compare = function (choice1, choice2) {
    if(choice1 === choice2) {
        return("The result is a tie!")
    }
    else if(choice1 === "rock") {
        if(choice2 === "scissors") {
            return("rock wins")
        }
        else {
            return("paper wins")
        }
    }
     else if(choice1 === "paper") {
        if(choice2 === "rock") {
            return("paper wins")
        }
        else {
            return("scissors wins")
        }
    }
}

@ec0re

I don’t really see any error, try refreshing webpage.

I just deleted the bit that they asked me to add and it went to the next lesson, so I guess it was just glitched.
