What am I suppose to do?

I keep editing the code, and I keep getting first line is not responding. Also, I keep getting a Syntax error.

var answer=prompt('What is the best programming language?');
  alert("You are correct")
  alert("JavaScript is the best language!")
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="app.js"></script>

Hey Luis, I think the syntax error you are getting is because of your else have ().

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
   alert("You are correct");
    alert("Javascript is the best language!");

Here is what I did:

var answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");

if(answer === "JavaScript"){

  alert("You are correct");
  alert("JavaScript is the best language!"); 

This code passed the challenge.

You basically made two mistakes: 1) do not add ";" at the end of lines with alert, 2) create "()" after word else
