Question

Why am I getting a SyntaxError: Unexpected token error?

Answer

It is likely that you wrote your else if/else incorrectly. Make sure that your else ifs are between your if and else. In JavaScript you do not need an else if you don’t want one but you cannot have an else if before an if or after an else. Once you use else, that’s it. The conditional branches following the original if are done.
