change 'Javascript' to 'JavaScript'... The string is case sensitive your code is perfect other than that

You made a spelling typo. it should be JavaScript. JavaScript is case sensitive. JavaScript is not the same as javascript.

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

it should be

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

if (answer === 'JavaScript') {
  alert ("You are correct");
}
