What's wrong with my code

SyntaxError: Unexpected keyword ‘else’



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{
    return "scissors wins";
}
}



#2

The error usually indicates a missing brace (closing brace in this case). Specifically, just before the last else if.


#3

I added that closing brace but I’m still having trouble with this code…now I have errors on the last else if and the last else.

and

both have illegal tokens, ; that should be removed.
