Introducing Else If Statements - missing {

Tell us what’s happening:

Am i crazy of is this else if statement missing the final { ?

In the example:

if (num > 15) {
return “Bigger than 15”;
} else if (num < 5) {
return “Smaller than 5”;
} else {
return “Between 5 and 15”;

Which there is clearly a { after the last else.

But the only way to pass the challenge is by omitting it…

What am I missing here?

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";

// Change this value to test

Link to the challenge:

If you want the braces, add one after the else, and a closing one after the last return line.


Oh, huh… So either one works? The last bracket closes the first one after (val)?

Sorry, this is my first time actually diving into Javascript and it’s a little confusing at times. So far I am really loving fCC though.

Thanks for the help!
