Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Introducing Else Statements

Link to the challenge:

Hi there and welcome to our community!

You should only change code between the lines indicated.

If you run your code you should see an error message in the console indicating that you have changed code elsewhere.

Is there a reason why you changed the let keyword to var? That may have been part of an older solution to this challenge but var has now been superseded by let and const.

All good, except you added code below this line. Did you add that extra comment?

You should have declare [var result = " "] ; to [let result = " " ;] just change the var keyword use let key word.
