Problem with Counting Cards challenge

Tell us what’s happening:
I am stuck with this freecodecamp challenge. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?

Your code so far


var count = 0;

function cc(card) {
  // Only change code below this line
  if(card === (2||3||4||5||6))
  {
    count++;
  }
  else if(card === (10||'J'||'Q'||'K'||'A'))
  {
    count--;
  }
  
  if(count>0){
    return count+" Bet";
  }
   else{
    return count+" Hold";
  }
  // Only change code above this line
}

// Add/remove calls to test your function.
// Note: Only the last will display
cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Link to the challenge:

You can not make multiple comparisons like you are trying to do. Instead, you must make each comparison to card separated by || operator.

For example:
card === 2 || card === 3

Try using something like this code below, or switch statment.

if(card === 2 || card === 3 || card === 4 || card === 5 || card === 6) {

} else if(card === 10 || card === ‘J’ || card === ‘Q’ || card === ‘K’ || card === ‘A’) {

}

Thanks a lot for your immediate reply😊

That is exactly what I suggested earlier.
