What am I doing wrong?

Wants me to add a final clause statement but not sure how to put two variables in the "else" statement

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
} else if (isStudent) {
    alert('Welcome student');
} else (isAdmin + isStudent) {
  alert('Who are you?');

Don't try to pass variables into else clause, it is there as a final fallback to be executed when everything before that fails their check.

else {
     alert("Who are you?");
