Here's my code. Mr. Guil said to share so here it is: /*

  1. Store correct answers
    • When quiz begins, no answers are correct */ let score = 0;

// 2. Store the rank of a player let rank = "None";

// 3. Select the <main> HTML element document.querySelector('main');


  1. Ask at least 5 questions
    • Store each answer in a variable
    • Keep track of the number of correct answers */ const QUIZ = prompt("What coding languge is also the name of a snake?");

if ( QUIZ.toUpperCase() === "PYTHON") { score += 1 alert("You are right!"); } else{ alert("WRONGNESS! It was Python!"); }

const quiz = prompt("What planet is closest to the sun?");

if ( quiz.toUpperCase() === "MERCURY") { score += 1 alert("RIGHT!"); } else{ alert("Incorrect!"); }

const QuIz = prompt("What is the biggest city in the world?")

if ( QuIz.toUpperCase() === "CHONGQING") { score += 1 alert("CORRECT!"); } else{ alert("WRONGQING! IT was Chongqing!"); }

const quiZ = prompt("What replaces the I in PIXAR at the beginning of PIXAR movies?");

if ( quiZ.toUpperCase() === "A LAMP") { score += 1 alert("You are right!"); } else { alert("YOU'RE WRONG!!! IT was a lamp!"); }

const Quiz = prompt("Is Pluto a planet, an icy drawf planet, an asteroid, or an ouyotraed?");

if ( Quiz.toUpperCase() === "AN ICY DRAWF PLANET") { score += 1 alert("You were right! It's not a planet or an asteroid, and an ouyotraed doesn't exist!"); } else { alert("YOU WAS WRONG!!! IT WAS AN ICY DRAWF PLANET!"); }

/* 5. Rank player based on number of correct answers

  • 5 correct = Gold
  • 3-4 correct = Silver
  • 1-2 correct = Bronze
  • 0 correct = No crown */ if ( score === 5) { rank = "GOLD" } else if ( score === 4 || score === 3) { rank = "Silver" } else if ( score === 1 || score === 2) { rank = "bronze" } else { rank = "No" } // 6. Output results to the <main> element main.innerHTML = <h2>You got ${score} out of 5 questions correct!</h2> <p>Crown Earned: <strong>${rank}</strong> <p> ;

When posting code, use Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance and retain special symbols. Another way to share code and make it easy to replicate is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.
The blue links lead to tutorial videos for each concept.
