Unexpected keyword else - what is wrong pt9?


#1

I can't spot what is wrong - Can someone please help with an explanation. I'm finding this javascript stuff really confusing!

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 if(choice1==="scissors") {
     if (choice2==="paper") 
     return"scissors wins";
    }
     else {
     return"rock wins";

     }
}

}
console.log(compare(userChoice,computerChoice));

@scriptrockstar25257,
You are forgetting a couple of closing-curly-brackets-}

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • the truth-table
  • the build of the IF ELSE-IF statement structure as part of the compare FUNCTION-BODY
  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
