Else Clause

Hi

Trying to add a final else clause but a little lost. I know I have to combine the admin and student variables but not sure how.

Thanks Kevin

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
}
else ()
  }

The else clause does not take parenthesis(no condition).It should be:

else{

}
