What goes in parentheses?

This objective continues to ask me if i put 'true' in the parentheses for the conditional statement. I continue to swap between putting 'isAdmin' and 'true' in the parentheses and this is not working. Please help!

script.js
var isAdmin = true;
var isStudent = false;

if ( isAdmin ) {
  prompt('Welcome administrator');
}

Your test is fine.

But the challenge said that when the tested condition was true, you should "open an alert". (you did a prompt instead).
