else if

if (correct === 5){
  rank = "Gold";
} else if (correct >= 3){
  rank = "Silver";
} else if (correct >= 2){ //THIS ONE!
  rank = "Bronze";
} else {
  rank = "No Crown!";

The second "else if" should be else if (correct >= 1), because if you've answered 1 question correctly you'll get "No crown" in this case!

Is that right?

You are correct, if a user gets 1 question right in this code they will get a rank of "No Crown!". To me it looks like this was an error in logic or a typo. else if (correct >= 1) would return bronze if the user got a 1 as the comments above it listed. Good catch!

This is where proofreading code, and testing come in handy! A unit test probably would've caught this error for us and shows the importance of using testing! :)

Hi there,

Yep, it is a typo. It should be (correct >= 1). I've added the correction in the teacher's notes below the video, as well as in the project files. :)
