Line 1 will run, but theres no need to use prompt. You can simply define the variable secret. A do while loop will always run once. There's no need for a boolean expression initially with the "do" and you can remove the parenthesis and just leave opening and closing {}. Lastly, the program should stop running if the user enters "sesame" however, currently your loop will continue if the user enters the correct password. You want your while loop to check if the word entered does not equal "sesame" it should continue with the do while.

var secret;
do  {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");    
}while (secret !== "sesame") 
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
