It says task 1 is no longer working but I havent changed anything and it does not look like there is any conflicting cod

I just do not see why task 1 is no longer passing for my code here. It seems as if I am doing everything correct. I even added toUpperCase to answer and changed the value to JAVASCRIPT to make it better but it says task 1 is broken.

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
if ( answer === 'JavaScript'); {
  alert("<p>You are correct</p>");
else {
  alert("<p>Javascript is the best language</p>");

There is a semi-colon after the condition in your if statement, remove it and your code should work.
