Pleas help: "SyntaxError: expected expression, got keyword 'else' "


#1

I got stuck and I can't find the error.
It would be great if anyone could help me...
Heres 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);
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 (choice1 === "scissors") {if (choice2 === "rock") {
return"rock wins";
}
else {
return"scissors wins";
}
}

}
compare("userChoice, computerChoice");

This here should be an else if,

And the last closing bracket of your else if should have a semi colon after it.

Also,

Remove the quotation marks around userChoice, computerChoice
