I'm not seeing the parsing error I made. Can you help me please?


var a = 10;
var b = 20;
var c = 30;
if (  a >  b) {
 alert('a is greater than b');   
else ( a <  b) {
    alert('a is not greater than b');

The else statement should be an else if when you want to check another condition. Use else when you want to execute a default statement when none of the other conditions have been met. See if that fixes the issue.
