JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Introducing Conditional Statements

Conditional not running , not even the prompt.....

var answer = prompt('What programming language is the name of a gem?'); if ( answer === 'RUBY') { document.write (<p>"That's the right answer"</p>);

else{ } blaa blaa blaa

var answer = prompt('What programming language is the name of a gem?'); var rightAnswer = ('Ruby'.toUpperCase()); if ( answer.toUpperCase() === rightAnswer) { document.write("<p>That's right!</p>"); } else { document.write("<p>Sorry, that's wrong.</p>"); }

I wrote mine like this and it worked. You are able to spell ruby any way you want and it will work

:point_right: It looks like you misplaced the quotes in your document.write.

It should probably look like this:

  document.write("<p>That's the right answer</p>");

You're also missing the closing brace (}) of the if block.

Thanks Steven
