Basic JavaScript - Introducing Else If Statements - TuedehEuu1gUw4bh83GQq

Tell us what’s happening:
why is there two } at the end of the first else statement ?

  **Your code so far**
function testElseIf(val) {
if (val > 10) {
  return "Greater than 10";
}

else if (val < 5) {
  return "Smaller than 5";
} else{ 
}
return "Between 5 and 10";
}

testElseIf(7);

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Introducing Else If Statements

Link to the challenge:

Let’s apply some formatting

function testElseIf(val) {
  if (val > 10) {
    return "Greater than 10";
  } else if (val < 5) {
    return "Smaller than 5";
  } else {
  }
  // Either this sholud be inside the else, or the else shouldn't be there
  return "Between 5 and 10";
}

The last } is closing the function the one before it is closing the else

As said, an empty else block doesn’t really make much sense.

Thank you very much. Would learning algo help me witb the structure and syntax?
