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

i've tried false.

ive tried false. I'm drawing a complete blank on these questions. does anyone have any suggestions? I've watched the videos. i've read the information. it's like I can't get past it? like a block.

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else if ( ) {

There's no third test, the final case should be just a plain "else" with no "if".

And you need a matching closing brace at the end if the final code block.

Thank you Steven. For some reason my brain just can't focus. It's like it's stuck In this block. I finished all of the prerecquiste courses for code Louisville but I'm stuck on these. I cant get past the conditional statements. I don't understand

Kim Dallas — Don't worry, that happens. You might enjoy this episode of The Treehouse Show that talks about the experience of "hitting the wall" and ways to deal with it.

Happy coding!
