Loop conditionals

Please help me with that code, I couldn't define what's wrong.

loop do print "Guess the number between 0 and 5 (e to exit): " answer = gets.chomp if answer == "e" puts "The number was #{random_number}." break else if answer.to_i == random_number puts "You guessed correctly!" break else puts "Try again." end end end


 loop do
   answer = get_answer()
  if answer == "e"
Assume get_answer() is already defined

Hi Leonardo,

Your code works. But you have one too many end statements. You only need to since loop do and if each require an end statement.

Also, make sure the last line remains commented (Add a # in the front)
