Hi MUZ140989 Eukael Mbuyisa , there're a few issues there in your code.

  • The if conditional should be if ( isAdmin === true ) not if ( true ), according to the Code challenge description.
  • You don't need to have an else clause for this particular challenge question.
  • Your code should alert the message using the alert function instead of document.write.
  • the correct alert message is 'Welcome administrator'.
var isAdmin = true;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin === true ) {
  alert('Welcome administrator');
}

Hope it helps
