I am testing the Teacher's Note Completed code which was provided. Is there a reason it is not working? https://w.trhou.se/xhil8hcuuo

// quiz begins, no answer correct
var correct = 0;

// ask questions
var answer1 = prompt ("Name a programming language that's also a gem");
if (answer1.toUpperCase() === 'RUBY') {
 correct += 1; 
}
var answer2 = prompt ("Name a programming language that's also a snake");
if (answer2.toUpperCase() === 'PYTHON') {
  correct += 1;
}
var answer3 = prompt ("What language do you use to style web pages?";
if (answer3.toUpperCase() === 'CSS') {
  correct += 1;
}
var answer4 = prompt ("What language do you use to build th structure of web pages?");
if (answer4.toUpperCase() === 'HTML') {
 correct += 1; 
}
var answer5 = prompt ("What language do you use to add interactivity to a web page?");
if (answer5.toUpperCase() === 'JAVASCRIPT') {
  correct += 1;
}

// ouput results
document.write("<p>You got " + correct + " out of 5 questions corret.</p>");

// output rank
if (correct === 5) {
 document.write("<p><strong>You earned a gold crown!</strong></p>");
} else if (correct >= 3) {
   document.write("<p><strong>You earned a silver crown.</strong></p>");
} else if (correct >= 2) {
   document.write("<p><strong>You earned a bronze crown.</strong></p>");
} else {
document.write("<p><strong>No crown for you. You need to study.</strong></p>");
}

Can you post the code here? Also did you see the teacher's notes for the video?

The best way to share code is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here, it makes it easy to replicate the issue and examine it.

It looks like you're missing a closing parenthesis after "What language do you use to style web pages?".

And for future questions, when pasting code in directly, always use Markdown formatting.

Sharp eye Steven! Thank you so much for the tip too!
