Tell us what’s happening:

what could be wrong with this code? its saying my if statement should have the string “false” as the condition.

Your code so far

const character = "#";
const count = 8;
const rows = [];

function padRow(rowNumber, rowCount) {
  return " ".repeat(rowCount - rowNumber) + character.repeat(2 * rowNumber - 1) + " ".repeat(rowCount - rowNumber);
}

// TODO: use a different type of loop
/*for (let i = 1; i <= count; i++) {
  rows.push(padRow(i, count));
}*/


// User Editable Region

if (false) {
  console.log("false");
}

// User Editable Region


let result = ""

for (const row of rows) {
  result = result + "\n" + row;
}

console.log(result);

Try changing the condition to the string "false".

false is a boolean type, not a string. "false" is a string.

I have changed it,
if (false) {
console.log(“condition is false”);
}
still not working.

The condition is currently false - a Boolean type.
Put it in a double quote to make it a string: "false"
