} else if ( false ) {
}   alert('Welcome Student')

  • You're closing the if branch two times
  • The 'else if' branch should test to see whether the isStudent variable is true
  • The body of your 'else if' has nothing in it. The body is the part within its curly braces

Thank you for your help. I see what you are saying and it worked out.
