JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Object Basics Filling Out the Play Method

How to write an if statement using dot notation?

I'm having a hard time with the whole language of javascript period, so could anyone give me a hand on this objective?

const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
