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

I need help with the else here...

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.

string language = Console.ReadLine();

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

Do the following as same. Good Luck!!

string language = Console.ReadLine();

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

else { System.Console.WriteLine("Bogus is not C#."); }

It doesn't look like you added any code yet, are you totally stumped? Here's a few hints:

  • The code that does the first part (Print “C# Rocks!” if language equals “C#”) is already done for you.
  • you just need to add code that does the other part (otherwise print language + “ is not C#.”)
  • the keyword in C# that means "otherwise" is else
  • look at how the first part is done to see how to print to the console
  • exactly what to print is shown, just re-type it yourself (or cut-and-paste and change the quotes)
