Not sure when it asks " Did you use the window.alert function".

I am trying to add a conditional statement, i think i have it correct but it keeps asking if i have used the window.alert() function.

var answer = prompt ('What is the best programming language?');
if ( answer.toUpperCase() === 'JAVASCRIPT'){
  document.write("<p>You are correct</p>");
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="app.js"></script>

The challenge wants you to use the alert() function to log the message not the document write.
