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

I'm not quite understanding how to use two different variables in one else clause.

I'm supposed to add a final else clause to check if both variables are false. I've tried multiple solutions I've found on the Internet, but none of them pass the quiz. Please help.

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

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

An else doesnt take a condition. It's a fallback if none of the 'if' or 'else if' branches evaluate to true.
