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 (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" 
        }
    }
};

HI this line

else if (choice1 === "rock") {}

you open and close the else if statement before you should close it after the else statement like that

    else if (choice1 === "rock") {} <-- #remove the }
        if (choice2 === "scissors") {
            return "rock wins"
        }
    else {
        return "paper wins"
    }
} <-- #add  this one
