# What if choice1 is scissors?

#1

I think I have my code fine but it still gives my "unexpexted token else" not sure what to do plz help

``````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 === "rock"){
return "rock wins";
}

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

compare (userChoice,computerChoice)``````

@moltenminer,
Do not use a semi-colon-; on your IF ELSE-IF statement structure !!
A semi-colon-; is interpreted as an End-of-Statement indicator....

ALSO

have a close look at an ELSE-IF IF ELSE code block....

``````else if (choice1 === "") {
if (choice2 === "") {
return ".... wins"
}
else {
return ".... wins"
}
}``````

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 )

I still can't figure it out

@moltenminer,
Display the FULL code you are using.....

I keep getting "unexpected token else" and I'm not sure what that means or how I fix it

//};  <==== this closes the compare-function and
//          and is cause of =unexpected ELSE=``````

``````    else if(choice1 === "scissors") {
if (choice2 === "paper") {
return "scissors wins"
}
else {
return "rock wins"
}
}  //;do not use  use a semi-colon-; on your IF ELSE-IF statement structure !!
}; //close compare function``````
