Different values in array

I'm using different values in my array, but after the first question my loop stops. It probably has something to do with the parsInt and the toUpperCase methods., but I can't figure it out. Thanks for helping in advance.

var correctAnswer = 0;

var questions = [
  ['How much is 10 + 10', 20],
  ['What does John Snow know?', 'NOTHING'],
  ['Is a tomato a vegetable or a fruit', 'YES']
  ];

var question;
var answer;
var response;
var html;


function print(message) {
  document.write(message);
}


for (var i = 0; i < questions.length; i += 1) {
  question = questions[i][0];
  answer = questions[i][1];
  response = parseInt(prompt(question));
  if (response === answer.toUpperCase()) {
    correctAnswer += 1;
  }
}

html = 'You got ' + correctAnswer + ' questions right';
print(html);

You're right, you can't do .toUpperCase() on a number. But you could store all your answers as strings (like "20") and then not use the parseInt at all.

Also, you probably want to convert the response into upper case instead of the answer (since it already is).

Of course! That makes total sense. Thanks!
