Where can I add the .toLowerCase() code in my code

Hi. I keep wanting to add the .toLowerCase() somewhere into my code. I've tried various places but it does not work. Does someone have any idea as to where I could add it for it to work? Below is my code:

let userScore = (0);
let userRank;

const answer1 = ("blue");
const answer2 = ("green");
const answer3 = ("orange");
const answer4 = ("black");
const answer5 = ("red");

const question1 = prompt("What color is the sky?");



// this the code to give the user its score

if (question1 === answer1) {
  userScore +=1;
  }

const question2 = prompt("What color are the trees?");
if (question2 === answer2) {
  userScore +=1;
  } 

const question3 = prompt("What color is an orange?");
if (question3 === answer3) {
  userScore +=1;
  } 

const question4 = prompt("What color is a black pen?");
if (question4 === answer4) {
  userScore +=1;
  } 

const question5 = prompt("What color is a strawberry?");
if (question5 === answer5) {
  userScore +=1;
  } 



// this the code to give the user its ranking
if (userScore === 5){
  userRank = ("Gold");
 } else if (userScore >= 3) {
   userRank = ("Silver");
 } else if (userScore >=1){
   userRank = ("Bronze");
 } else { 
   userRank = ("you did not get a");
 }

//Not practical but you can add .toLowerCase to the end of every prompt
const question1 = prompt("What color is the sky?").toLowerCase();

if (question1 === answer1) {
  userScore +=1;
