I've gone over this before Nasim. It seems you edited the original code quite a bit. But that's Ok. The bug that's left for you to correct would be in the 3rd "else if" code block. The logic/condition is wrong there. The proper condition should read (money < 10 && today === "Friday"). That way, the statement "It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out" would be valid, since var money = 9

Thank you for reply, I tried your code but problem is not solved, When I run the code message is same as before.

Chidiebere Ekennia solved my problem. Thanks a lot.
