"Error: Acess is denied" when calling the function at the end


#1

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";
}}}
compare(userChoice,computerChoice);

Everything was working up until the last segment and I can't find help in the other discussion posts! Any help would be appreciated.

and concentrate on:

  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
