/*

// 2. Store the rank of a player let rank;

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

/*

  1. Ask at least 5 questions
    • Store each answer in a variable
    • Keep track of the number of correct answers */ const answer1 = prompt("What is the color of the sky?"); if ( answer1.toUpperCase() === 'blue') { correct += 1; } const answer2 = prompt("What is the main color of the University of Utah?"); if ( answer2.toUpperCase() === 'red') { correct += 1; } const answer3 = prompt("Who is Thor's brother?"); if (answer3.toUpperCase() === 'Loki') { correct += 1;
      }
      const answer4 = prompt("Who made the song California Love?"); if (answer4.toUpperCase() === '2pac') { correct += 1; }
      const answer5 = prompt("What is the most popular stuffed animal?"); if (answer5.toUpperCase() === 'bear') { correct += 1; }

/*

  1. Rank player based on number of correct answers
    • 5 correct = Gold

    • 0 correct = No crown */ if ( correct === 5 ) { rank = "Gold"; } else if ( correct >= 3 ) { rank = "Silver";
      } else if ( correct >= 1 ) { rank = "Bronze";
      } else { rank = "None :("; } // 6. Output results to the <main> element main.innerHTML= <h2>You got ${correct} out of 5 questions correct.</h2> <p>Crown earned: <strong>${rank}</strong></p> ;

For each of your answer comparisons, you have the form if ( answer1.toUpperCase() === 'blue')

If the value for answer1 is 'blue', then answer1.toUpperCase() will become 'BLUE', which is not equal to 'blue'. If the value for answer1 is 'BLUE', then answer1.toUpperCase() will become 'BLUE', which is not equal to 'blue'.

You could try adjusting your first comparison to compare against 'BLUE' or, if you don't want to retype them, 'blue'.toUpperCase().
