Please help.

I don't know what is wrong with my code.

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else {
 alert('Who are you'); 
}

The code looks good. Looks like you just forgot a question mark for the 'Who are you?'

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else {
  alert('Who are you?');
}
