JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Add a Final Else Clause

how would you write a conditional statement for an else clause to test two variables ?

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin= ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
else(isAdmin=false || isStudent=faslse );{
  alert("Who are you");

Else statements don't have conditions. They execute when all previous conditions are false. In this case when the else statement is reached isAdmin and isStudent have already been tested as false. Some changes to make:

  • Remove the = after isAdmin
  • Remove the condition after else
  • Place a question mark after "Who are you"

this still didn't work

Can you post your updated code?
