It's always 0 when I use "||" instead of ">=" .

here's my code:

/*

  1. Rank player based on number of correct answers
    • 5 correct = Gold
    • 3-4 correct = Silver
    • 1-2 correct = Bronze
    • 0 correct = No crown */

if (correct === 1 || correct === 2){ rank = "Bronze" }else if(correct === 3 || correct === 4){ rank = "Silver"
}else if (correct === 5){ rank = "Gold" }else { rank = "None :(" }

Could someone tell me why?

Your code runs fine on my end. Have you counted the correct answers?

However, the codes could also be refactored with a switch statement when there's too many if statements involved:

let rank;
// play with this variable to see different results
let correct = 5;

switch (correct) {
    case 5:
        rank = "Gold";
        break;
    case 4:
    case 3:
        rank = "Silver";
        break;
    case 2:
    case 1:
        rank = "Bronze";
        break;
    default:
        rank = "No crown";
        break;
}
