10,730 Points

I have typed in the conditional statement just as it asks but it is telling me there is a syntax error?

My code is as follows:

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?"); If ( answer === 'JavaScript') { alert("You are correct"); }

var answer = prompt('What is the best programming language?');
If ( answer === "JavaScript" ) {
  alert("You are correct");
