# The Conditional Challenge Solution: how come all I got is 0?

Hello everyone,

The following is my code for the first part of this challenge. No matter what I put is yes or no in the prompt answer box, the score added up is zero. What went wrong with my code? Thanks a lot for your kind help.

```var score = 0;
var ans1 = prompt("Is the color of the ocean blue?");
if (ans1.toUpperCase === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans2 = prompt("Is Taj Mahal in India?");
if (ans2.toUpperCase === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans3 = prompt("Is Taj Hymalaya the tallest mountain in the world?");
if (ans3.toUpperCase === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans4 = prompt("Are all leaves green?");
if (ans4.toUpperCase === "NO") {
score += 1;
}

var ans5 = prompt("Do spiders have 10 legs?");
if (ans5.toUpperCase === "NO") {
score += 1;
}

document.write("You got total " + score + " scores.");
```

the toUpperCase is a function/method and therefore needs to have parenthesis after when using it to convert text to uppercase.

try this.

```var score = 0;
var ans1 = prompt("Is the color of the ocean blue?");
if (ans1.toUpperCase() === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans2 = prompt("Is Taj Mahal in India?");
if (ans2.toUpperCase() === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans3 = prompt("Is Taj Hymalaya the tallest mountain in the world?");
if (ans3.toUpperCase() === "YES") {
score += 1;
}

var ans4 = prompt("Are all leaves green?");
if (ans4.toUpperCase() === "NO") {
score += 1;
}

var ans5 = prompt("Do spiders have 10 legs?");
if (ans5.toUpperCase() === "NO") {
score += 1;
}

document.write("You got total " + score + " scores.");
```

I hop this helps.
