You mostly forgot the "if" keywords.

In an "if ... else if ... else" chain, only the very last condition can be a plain "else", all the others (after the first) must be "else if".

Also, a plain "else" would not have a conditional expression, since it catches everything that the previous conditions did not.

I got it thanks!
