What on Earth am I doing incorrectly, here?

I'm trying to put a conditional statement in. Seems very straight forward. Yet I'm being told what I've done here is incorrect? Any thoughts? Thank you!

var answer = prompt ('What is the best programming language?')
if (answer === 'JavaScript') {
  document.write ('<p>You are correct</p>');

Hi Ana,

You should use an alert() rather than document.write().

Also you forgot ; on your first line when defining your var.
