Can I Please Get Some Help With If/Else Directives!

The question in the challenge is: Underneath the previous code, store the value morning in a variable named $time. Then write an if/else directive that will color all <a> tags. If the variable $time is equal to morning, the color should be red. Otherwise, if the variable is afternoon, the color should be blue. Finally, if the variable is set to anything else, the color should be gray.

My code is below, I would appreciate some help, I've been trying at this question for days and can't get it. I'm excited because I'm also close to finishing the Sass course and I want to understand the If/Else Directive. I appreciate the help!
