Room temperature preferences objective error

Not sure whats going on, when I check my work, I keep getting an error on lines that are not written yet or am I reading this wrong.

CodeChallenge.cs
string input = Console.ReadLine();
int temperature = int.Parse(input);

if (temperature <=21)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too cold!");
}
else if (temperature >=21 && temperature <=22)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Just right.");
}
else (temperature <=22)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too hot!");
}

You're close, but I see two issues:

  • a plain "else" (like that last one) does not take a conditional expression
  • the first two conditionals overlap (they both include 21)

It took me a bit but I see it. finally found the solution. I was not using the Equal, Greater or Less Than the wrong way. now thank you for your help.
