Points are not totaling. I checked mistakes others made.

Hey guys, the problem I'm running into is that the score is not totaling. The game keeps saying no questions were answered correctly. I looked at the corrections for mistakes other people made and I don't see any of those mistakes in my code. Thanks!

// Intro var score = 0; alert("I am going to give you a 5 question quiz about mixed martial arts aka MMA, and if you get enough questions right you might get a crown! Get ready!");

// Question 1 var question1 = prompt("Who was the fighter who became famous as 'The Gracie Killer'?"); if (question1.toUpperCase() === "SAKURABA" || question1.toUpperCase() === "KAZUSHI SAKURABA") { score += 1; }

// Question 2 var question2 = prompt("What female fighter was an Olympic Judo competitor?"); if (question2.toUpperCase() === "ROUSEY" || question2.toUpperCase() === "RONDA ROUSEY") { score += 1; }

// Question 3 var question3 = prompt("Who was the first fighter to win a UFC belt and defend it 3 consecutive times?"); if (question3.toUpperCase() === "ROYCE" || question3.toUpperCase() === "ROYCE GRACIE") { score += 1; }

// Question 4 var question4 = prompt("What is the name of the Dutch championship fighter who is a 5th degree black belt in Kyokushin Karate?"); if (question4.toUpperCase() === "RUTTEN" || question4.toUpperCase() === "BAS RUTTEN") { score += 1; }

// Question 5 var question5 = prompt("How much did the UFC sell for in 2016?"); if (parseInt(question5) === "$4,000,000,000" || parseInt(question5) === "4 billion dollars" || parseInt(question5) === "$4 billion") { score += 1; }

// Point Summary if (score === 5) { document.write("Awesome job. You get the Gold Crown! You know your shit."); } else if (score >== 3) { document.write("You did pretty damn good. Congrats. Silver Crown."); } else if (score >== 1) { document.write("You get the Bronze Crown."); } else (score === 0) document.write("Your total is 0 points. No crown for you!");

Dear William, in your code there are only two mistake

  1. first is: "else if (score >=="
    --please replace with --- "else if (score >=",

  2. when you are using only else, must not use any type of condition with else: "else (score === 0) document.write("Your total is 0 points. No crown for you!");" --please replace with --- "else {document.write("Your total is 0 points. No crown for you!");}"

There are no strict relational operators in JavaScript.

Unlike equality and inequality, there are no strict versions of the relational operators (like ">=").

And as Sushant pointed out, the plain else statement does not take a conditional expression. It handles all cases not previously covered by if and else if statements.
