Hey again Nicollette,

In the code you shared, you're using vas in place or var which would cause an issue with your code.

However, this challenge is only asking you for a super simple if statement solution.

Check out this working code:

var isAdmin = true;
var isStudent = false;

if(isAdmin === true) {
 alert("Welcome administrator"); 
}

By adding a new variable to your code, you went from checking if isAdmin was true to checking if answer was true, which was why the code challenge wouldn't allow you to pass.

I also just noticed you have paragraph tags in your "Welcome administrator" alert, which aren't necessary since alerts pop up in alert boxes and aren't actually written to the document.

Good luck with the challenge!
