Else clause with two variables. I need help!

The challenge ask this: "Add a final else clause to this conditional statement so that if the isAdmin variable and isStudent variables are both false an alert opens with the message "Who are you?""

How can I put two variables inside the else () ?

Thank you, Davide

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


if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else () {
  alert("Who are you?");
}

Hi Davide, the question is if the isAdmin variable and isStudent variables are both false alert "who are you?". you no need to put the variables in the else statement.

So, check this code below:

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;


if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else {
  alert("Who are you?");
}

Hope this helps!!!
