This is the error that comes everytime: I entered bogus i expected bogus is not C# instead i got cheese is not C#

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

if(language == "C#")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
}
else{

if (language != "C#"){

System.Console.WriteLine("Cheese is not C#");

}

The word "Cheese" was just an example, the code needs to show what was actually input to the "language" variable. The instructions give you the argument to use :point_right: language + " is not C#."

Also, you don't need to perform another test, since the "else" code will only run if the language was not "C#".

Hi~Maybe you can try the following codes.

string language = Console.ReadLine();
if (language == "C#")
{
   System.Console.WriteLine("{0} Rocks!",language);
}
else
{
   System.Console.WriteLine("{0} is not C#", language);            
}

That will work, but you're getting ahead of the course. At this point, the concept of placeholder substitution hasn't yet been introduced and simple concatenation is expected.
