:point_right: else does not take a conditional statement.

You could convert it into another else if:

  else if (temperature > 22)
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Too hot!");
  }

or, since you've already tested the other possibilities, just let it stand alone (comment optional):

  else // temperature > 22
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Too hot!");
  }
