confused

how to solve this

ConferenceRegistrationAssistant.java
public class ConferenceRegistrationAssistant {

  public int getLineFor(String lastName) {
    /* If the last name is between A thru M send them to line 1
       Otherwise send them to line 2 */
    int line = 0;
    if (char lineOne = lastName.charAt(0) <= 'M')
     }
      System.out.println("Line 1"); 
    } else {
      System.out.println("Line 2");
    }
    return line;
  }

}

Would help if you paste in the question along with the original code of the challenge so we can know what you're suppose to achieve.

Double check your parenthesis, and instead of printing, why not set the line variable? It gets returned to the caller of the method in the last line there.

I did this after ... int line = 0;

if( lastName.charAt(0) <='Q')  line=1;
    else line=2;

Why Q? Where'd your brackets go?

Other than that, you nailed it.

I do not know why Q. It can be any letter... i think so.

About brackets - i forgot them
