For this challenge, "ReadLine" will be used only once, and it should be before any conditional statements.

The conditional test will then determine which output will be shown.

The code for the "ReadLine" and the first condition are both supplied to you when the challenge starts. These should not be changed. Your task to handle the alternate response should be coded by adding lines after the ones provided.
