<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>

<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>

```

/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”;
}
}
}

it says: “SyntaxError: Unexpected Token else”
and:
“Oops, Try again. There was a problem with your syntax”

@heammawihio,
With

``````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";
}
}
} //<<< this closes the =compare= function !!!!
``````

You have already closed the compare Function !!!

Thank you I have been stuck on this for a month and a half! It is weird it said that was right before and now it’s wrong!? Thank you!

#4

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 )

var compare = function(choice1,choice2) {
if (choice1 === choice2) {
if (choice1 === “paper”){
return(“The result is a tie!”);
}

if(choice1 === “rock”) {
if(choice2 === “scissors”) {
} else {
}
}
if(choice1 === “paper”) {
if(choice2 === “rock”) {
} else {
if(choice2 === “scissors”) {
}
}
if(choice1 === “scissors”) {
if(choice2 === “rock”) {
} else {
if(choice2 === “paper”) {
}
}
}
}
};

You are required to use an IF ELSE IF statement structure
