can't figure out why I am getting unexpected end of script error.. otherwise I actually think I understand !

var correctGuess = false; var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1; var guess = prompt('I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?'); if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) { correctGuess = true; } else if (parseInt(guess) < randomNuber) { var guessMore = prompt("Guess again, the number I am thinking of is more than " + guess); if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; } else if (parseInt(guess) > randomNumber) { var guessMore = prompt("Try again, the number I am thinking of is less than " + guess); if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) { correctGuess = true; } } if ( correctGuess ) { document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>'); } else { document.write('<p>Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '.</p>'); }

//error on console says it has to do with line 20 - my last curly bracket?//

Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting.

      <p>This is code!</p>

or you can use the snapshot function.

This error is most commonly caused by unmatched parentheses or braces. In this case, the program needs one more closing brace to be balanced.
