The challenge asks to create an if statement and make an alert if the variable isAdmin is true.

Remember the if statement structure:

if (condition) {
  // block of code to be executed if the condition is true

So, in the javascript file (script.js) start by creating an empty if statement that checks if isAdmin is equal to true. Then fill the statement with the code to make an alert:

if (isAdmin === true) {
  alert("Welcome administrator");

Here we are simply stating a line of code that will be executed if isAdmin is true, which will happen, as the variable value is indeed set to true in the first line of the given code.
