Challenge Task 1 of 1

Print "C# Rocks!" if language equals "C#" otherwise print language + " is not C#." So if I entered "Cheese" then "Cheese is not C#." would be printed to the screen.

if(language == "C#")
  Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
else if ("language +" == C#)

        Console.WriteLine(language + "is not C#.");

When the instructions say "otherwise", it implies that you would use a plain "else". You don't need another "if" with a condition.

Also, the challenges tend to be very picky about outputs. It's expecting to see a space before the word "is" to separate it from the language name.
