# Swift if statement: I think I know what I am doing, but the quiz does not agree.

The quiz question is :

You are provided with a constant array named months that contains 3 consecutive numbers starting at 1. Using a for-in loop and an if statement, print out "January" when you encounter a 1, "February" when you encounter a 2, and finally "March" when you encounter a 3

my code is

```let months = [1, 2, 3]

for month in months{
if( month == 1)
{
println("Januaray")

}
else if( month == 2)
{
println("February")

}
else if( month == 3)
{
println("March")

}
}
```

The error reported is Bummer! You need to use an if statement.

Please note I used just if statements in stead of if else as noted above, with the same error.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Brian,

It looks like you have "Januaray" when it should be "January". Also, Swift doesn't allow you to have parenthesis with your if statements.

```let months = [1, 2, 3]
for month in months{
if month == 1
{
println("January")

}
else if month == 2
{
println("February")

}
else if month == 3
{
println("March")

}
}
```

I guess the fact it was saying I am missing a if statement is what confused me.

let months = [1, 2, 3]

```for month in months{
if( month == 1)
{
println("January")

}
else if( month == 2)
{
println("February")

}
else if( month == 3)
{
println("March")

}
}
```

Error " Bummer! You need to use an if statement."

I am going to edit my original answer to reflect this, but Swift is evidently very picky with if statements. You cannot use parenthesis with your if statements. Once I changed that (and January of course), I passed the challenge.
