Hey everyone,

my code just returns -- SyntaxError: Unexpected token else

any idea as to why? Is the double else if/ else if messing it up?

I'd appreciate any assistance!


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";
        }
    }
}

You need to have one more closing tag below the existing one like so:

 else {
            return "paper wins";
        }
}
