Upon submitting the "Name" of the user after finishing the quiz I need the alert message to show his/her numerical standing based on their quiz score with the name they submitted. One of the minor issues I am encountering is that the alert reads back to me 


[object HTMLInputElement] Where the "Name" of the user should be.

What I have tried:

These are some of the functions I tried
JavaScript
/*function formSubmission() {
  if (confirm('Do you want to submit')) {
    document.getElementById('submit-form');
  } else {
    return false;
  };


};*/

/*function store() {
  localStorage.setItem('name', name.value);
}*/

Look at your output request:

function formSubmission() {
  firstName.innerText
  if (confirm('Do you want to submit')) {
    alert(`Congrats ${firstName} you won!`)
  } else {
    return false;
  };


Notice that you use "firstName.innerText" (although what it's doing in that position in your script - just hanging there - eludes me). Anyway, the "." implies it's an object with one or more potential values. If you ask to display it without qualifying which of those values you wish to use then you are asking it to display an object with multiple components.

You need to tell it which component you wish to display.
