# Lesson #7 What if choice1 is paper?

#1

I have run into the error "Unexpected token else".

``````Replace this line with your 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);*/

var compare = function(choice1,choice2) {
if(choice1 === choice2) {
return "The result is a tie!";
}
else if(choice2 === "scissors"){
return "rock wins"
}
else { return "paper wins"}
else if(choice1 === "paper") {
if(choice2 === "rock") {
return "paper wins";
}
else {
return "scissors wins"
}
} }``````

I'm not sure what this code block is responsible for. Looks like part of something related to choice 1==="rock". I would do this over. The good news is is you correctly put together the code for the exercise related to a code block executing for choice1==="paper".

This is perfect. Use it to work on the previous else if statement for choice1==="rock".

``````var compare = function(choice1,choice2) {
if(choice1 === choice2) { //if statement
return "The result is a tie!";
}
else if(choice2 === "scissors"){
return "rock wins"
}
else { return "paper wins"} //end of the if statement because of  'else'
else if(choice1 === "paper") { //now that 'else if' needs an 'if' before... here is the problem...
if(choice2 === "rock") {
return "paper wins";
}
else {
return "scissors wins"
}
} }``````
