I'm not seeing what is wrong here

I'm practicing this tutorial and it's saying "Condition 1 is no longer passing". I didn't change anything in condition one, nor do I see any errors in the code. What's up??

app.js
var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
if (answer === JavaScript) {
  alert("You are correct");
}
index.html

You have forgotten to place quotes around the word JavaScript. Since it is a string you have to wrap it in quotes, like this:

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