#1

var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");

    }

@netsolver14434 this the format of the if/else if/ else construct

if(condition){
   //statements
}
else if(other_condition){
 //statements
}
else{// else takes no conditions
//statements
}

your problem lies on these lines

else (choice1 === "scissors") { // not correct else takes no consdition

also here

return "scissors wins" // you need to add semicolon
