If/Else exercises

I am failing in the IF/Else exercise. If Language = "C#" then print code "C# Rocks!

string language = Console.ReadLine();
if {
  language = "C#"
    Console.Write("C# Rocks!")

2 issues. Your expression is in the wrong spot. It should be if (expression) {};

Second, a single equals sets a variable. To check, you need double equals (i.e. == ).

So you get:

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

(And don't forget your semi-colons after the Console.Write()! )

Hi Sadaf - After if you need a set of parenthesis. Inside the parenthesis you can check if language is equal to "C#". Remember that to check for equality you need == and also your Console.Wrtite() statement need to end with a semicolon.
