ifElse.js


#1


var harryPotterFan = true;
if (harryPotterFan == true);
{
  console.log('Mischief managed');
}
else
{ 
  console.log('I lead a muggle\'s life');
};

Did 'Mischief managed' or 'I lead a muggle's life' log to the console?

This is the second time I've been stumped by an if/else excersise, the Else part is always red even though it looks exactly like the example.
Bug? bad habit I've developed that I'm not seeing?

Remove the semicolon at the end of the first else if
