JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements The Conditional Challenge Solution

Trying to use For condition and String, but it did not work! Ask help!

My code is as follows. Anyone can correct it?

var quizAnswer = ["Lilian","25","Designer","Blue","Dog"];

quizAnswer[0] = prompt("What is my name?"); quizAnswer[1] = prompt("What is my age?"); quizAnswer[2] = prompt("What is my occupation?"); quizAnswer[3] = prompt("What is my favorite color?"); quizAnswer[4] = prompt("What is my favorite pet?");

var NumOfCorrect=0;

var length = length.quizAnswer; for(var i=0;i<length;i++){ if(quizAnswer[i]===true){ NumOfCorrect = NumOfCorrect+1; } } document.write(NumOfCorrect); console.log(NumOfCorrect); var x; switch(NumOfCorrect){ case 5: x="Gold Crown"; break; case 4: x="Silver Crown"; break; case 3: x="Silver Crown"; break; case 2: x="Bronze Crown"; break; case 1: x="Bronze Crown"; break; case 0: x="No Crown"; break; }

Hi Steven, thanks so much for correcting! It works!

I see a few issues:

  • the assignments of the results of calling prompt overwrite the array that holds the actual answers
  • you probably need a different array to hold the user answers (perhaps "userAnswer"?)
  • you wrote: "length.quizAnswer" but you probably intended "quizAnswer.length"
  • instead of comparing "quizAnswer[i]" to true, you probably want to compare it with "userAnswer[i]"

Fixing those issues should get you going.
