Build “Rock, Paper, Scissors” 7/9
<Below this line, in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
On exercise 6/9, my code works fine. Now that i am on 7/9, i get the error message “SyntaxError: expected expression, got keyword ‘else’”. I don’t see anything wrong with my code. Appreciate the help! Thanks!

```

/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”;
}
};

<do not remove the three backticks above>
else if (...) {
    if (...) {

    } else {

    }
}
else if (...) {
    if (...) {

    } else {

    }
}

Notice the pattern? Where we write the closing braces is critical.

Oh, i see my error. Thank you for your help, mtf.
