Here are the instructions:

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?"

Just in case:

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