"Add a Boolean value to the condition in this conditional statement. Use a boolean value that will result in the message "This is true" appearing in an alert box."

Is the question asking me to create a whole setup like the random number guessing game for example? or am i overthinking this one

if () {
    alert('This is true');
} else {
    alert('This is false');

You are definitely over-thinking this one. All you need to do is place a boolean value, either true or false, into the arguments of the if, then statement.


if (true) {
    alert('This is true');
} else {
    alert('This is false');

No worries. If that works, would you mind marking my answer as best answer? I'm trying to get my points.
