How to figure out this question?

Add an else if clause that tests if the isStudent variable

const isAdmin = false; const isStudent = true; let message;

script.js
const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = true;
let message;


if(isAdmin === true) {
    console.log('Welcome student')
  }

  else if() {

  }

Hi Jane. So you have the correct format for the else if. You just need to add the condition. Also you do not want to change what they have for the first if statement. That will just confuse the the code checker. So go back to the original code. So add the condition just like they have. With a bool you don’t have to check if it’s true just say if (isStudent) and then use the message variable not the console.log

Hope that helps and keep at it Jane!

const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = true;
let message;

if ( isAdmin ) {
  message = 'Welcome admin';
} else if () {
}
