quick question on my if statement

I've attached my code

CodeChallenge.cs
bool language = true; 

string language = Console.ReadLine();

if(language == "C#")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
}
else { 
  System.Conole.WriteLine( + "is not C#"); 
}

The real answer to the original issue was that this piece of code:

bool language = true; 

string language = Console.ReadLine();

...was declaring the same variable twice, and as two different types. A variable cannot be declared twice in the same scope.

Once that is fixed, you have an additional issue with this line:

  System.Conole.WriteLine( + "is not C#"); 

It looks like you forgot to put your variable before the + sign. Plus you might want to add a space at the beginning of the string being added on.

Figured it out , I read the question wrong see the answer below

string language = Console.ReadLine();

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

System.Conole.WriteLine( + "is not C#");

If you add "+" you are making a concatenation, so you need two parameters. One on left and one on right. Be sure to put a space between words when you are concatenating strings (between " and is. [ "is..." starts with a space "_is.."] ).

System.Conole.WriteLine( language + " is not C#");

Odd, this question shows up as having "0 Answers" in the forum index, when it actually has 3.

I'm adding this one to see if it will fix the index.

Followup: No, it didn't. :disappointed:
