I'm pretty sure my code is right but still getting error


#1

Ok, so i keep getting the error "SyntaxError: expected expression, got keyword 'else'". Here is my code:

/*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);*/
function compare(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 win"
}
}
}

Thanks.

@whoami06,
Here

else if (choice1 === "rock"); {

you are using semi-colon-; right after your IF-condition
causing the Javascript Interpreter to see it as END-OF-ELSE-IF statement.
