Hi James,

there's an issue with your if else statement. You have else keyword inside your if block. Also you have to do something in your if else block -> string on its own isn't going to do anything so you have to console.log() each string. Check the code below.

const a = 10;
const b = 20;
const c = 30;

if (a > b) {
  console.log('a is greater than b');
} else {
  console.log('a is not greater than b');
}
