Hi Linsey. The challenge states... Add a final else clause to this conditional statement so that if the isAdmin variable and isStudent variables are both false an alert opens with the message "Who are you?".

So there are 2 conditional statements already coded and the idea is that if both respond as 'false' all your code needs to do is open the alert ("Who are you?"). You just need to remove that 3rd condition you added and all should be good.
