else if

error message: I entered "21". I expected "Just right." but got "Just right" instead.

CodeChallenge.cs
string input = Console.ReadLine();
int temperature = int.Parse(input);
if (temperature < 21)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too cold!");
}
else if (temperature <= 22)
{

    Console.WriteLine("Just right");
}
else 
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too hot!");

}

Hi there! You're doing terrific! Your logic and syntax are on point, so good work! But the Bummer means exactly what it says. It's expecting "Just right." (with a full stop/period), but it's getting back "Just right" with no full/stop period. It's a picky thing, I know, but these challenges are super strict especially when checking for matching strings. It must match to the letter. This includes capitalization, spelling, punctuation and even spacing!

Changing "Just right" to "Just right." causes this code to pass the challenge.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
