First off, put your code in line with the instructions…

*    'It is certain'
*    'It is decidedly so'
*    'Reply hazy try again'
*    'Cannot predict now'
*    'Do not count on it'
*    'My sources say no'
*    'Outlook not so good'
*    'Signs point to yes'

and the variable is, eightBall.

Consider,

switch (expression) {
case 1:
  action; break;
case 2:
  action; break;
default:
  action;
}

can be equated to,

if (expression === 1) {
  // action
} else if (expression === 2) {
  // action
} else {
  // action
}
