C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform if / else

entry statement invalid. Why?

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.

CodeChallenge.cs
string language = Console.ReadLine();

if(language == "C#")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
}
else (entry == "Cheese")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("Cheese is not C#");
}

You are doing great! There are some exceptions though. So first, you cannot give "else" a condition (boolean). Second, the challenge is asking "If the language is anything other than C#, print "<what the input is> isn't C#"." So try this code instead:

string language = Console.ReadLine();

if(language == "C#")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
} 
else
{
  System.Console.WriteLine(language + " is not C#");
}

Hope that helps! :dizzy:

Try leaving off the (entry=="cheese"). You dont specify the value for entry anywhere so condition never gets met. You dont need the 2nd condition in this case.
