"Illegal 'break' statement.

Teacher's code (which I replicated after completing the challenge myself first) produces an error "Uncaught SyntaxError: Illegal break statement" in the section of the code that is supposed to address the user clicking "cancel" or typing "quit" in the prompt. Anyone know why? Thank you.

Hi Alex Seri,

It's really hard to say why the illegal break statement error was produced without being able to view and test your code, so it'd be great if you could fork your workspace or provide a link to your repo so that someone can check it for you.

That said, here's a link to an MDN article on the break statement:
