What if choice1 is rock wat wrong?


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";



You are forgetting 1 closing-curly-bracket-}
at the end of your code
which will close/end the FUNCTION-BODY.

Please read
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 )
