Add a conditional statement that opens an alert dialog box with the message "You are correct" when the answer contains t

it says "Oops! it looks like Task1 is no longer passing"

app.js
var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
if (answer === "JavaScript" )  {
alert("You are correct");

It looks like you just need to include your last curly brace to complete the code block.

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
if (answer === "JavaScript" )  {
     alert("You are correct");
}

One tip to get round this is to create an empty code block for functions and condition statements so that you know you have any parenthesis and curly brace you need for your code

if(expression){
 //code goes here
}
