Oops, try again. Your code returned 'paper wins' instead of 'undefined' when the inputs are scissors and paper

I don't understand why this isn't passing through properly.


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"
	}
}
else if (choice1 === "scissors"){
	if (choice2 === "rock"){
		return "rock wins";
	}
	else {
		return "paper wins"
	}
}
else if (choice1 === "scissors"){
	if (choice2 === "paper"){
		return "scissors wins";
	}
	else {
		return "rock wins"
	}
}
}
console.log( compare(userChoice, computerChoice));

I reread this over again closely and figured out where I went wrong. I put this code in and it works properly now:

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"
}
}
else if (choice1 === "scissors"){
if (choice2 === "rock"){
return "rock wins";
}
else {
return "scissors wins"
}
}
}
console.log( compare(userChoice, computerChoice));
