HELP! I can't figure out what's wrong with my code.

Here is a screenshot of my workspace: https://w.trhou.se/eylsym022i

I've tested the code and everything seems to work fine until I get to the very last line of code. My last else statement makes the who code, not run at all it seems. Can someone please tell me what's wrong with it?

A plain "else" doesn't take a conditional expression, and doesn't need one since it handles any case not covered by the previous "if" and "else if" statements. Giving it an expression causes a syntax error.

If you want, you could optionally show the condition you expect it to handle in a comment:

} else /* results === 0 */ {

Oh okay, I get what I was doing wrong now. Thank you so much. I had been stuck there for hours and couldn't understand why it was wrong.
