I'm not able to figure out this question.

Please help me with the answer to this question.

bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints =3;
if ( hasBonus >= powerPoints ) {
  hasBonus = false;
else { hasBonus = true;

Hey Arjun,

While the syntax of you code is correct, I feel you may have misread the instructions for the second task.

First, you didn't assign the correct value to powerPoints... you gave it 3, but the task specifically asks for it to be assigned 5.

Second, you are comparing hasBonus to powerPoints in the conditional, but the tasks asks explicitly for you to compare powerPoints to a hard-coded value of 3.

With this in mind, go back and give it another shot. Pay close attention to the instructions. Challenges are very picky and will only pass if you do exactly what is asked.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
