Hello Gilbert. You're off to a good start! Here's my solution to this:

var answer = prompt('What is the best programming languauge?');
// Let's assume the answer is supposed to be 'JavaScript'
if (answer === 'JavaScript') {
    alert('You are correct!');
// You could also alert something like this below, but it's not necessary.
    alert('Your answer' + answer + ' is correct!');
}

Thanks Julian appreciate the help.
