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

I edited the final else clause and got the required "Who are you?" alert, but it still says it's wrong. What now?

Any ideas on how to fix this?

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

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

Try this ?

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

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

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

try this

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