JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Super Conditional Challenge

Hello, I have changed comparison statements, but continue getting error message any suggestions.

Need assistance with comparison statements.

script.js
var money = 9;
var today = 'Friday'

if ( money >= 100 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time to go to the theater");    
} else if ( money >= 50 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie and dinner");    
} else if ( money > 10 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie");   
} else if ( today || == 'Friday' ) {
  alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out");   
} else {
  alert("It is Friday. I need to stay home.");
}

I think you may have overlooked part of my answer to your previous question:

The "OR" operator ( || ) is true if either test is true. You want to change the operator so the expressions are true only if both tests are true. You want each if statement to test the money and ( && ) the day. Fix that on each line with two tests.

Also, what's currently on this line is an invalid combination of two operators:

} else if ( today || == 'Friday' ) {

On that line, the original code was checking if it is not Friday, but you want to make it test if it is Friday instead.

And be careful to not change any of the messages, only the test expression operators.

Got it thank you for your patience Steven!
