Third example were i get the remark that i need to use seperat if statements which i am already doing! Wrong?

I don't see where i go wrong in this! Does anyone else see where the mistake is at?

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
//$GPA = 4.0;
if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) //|| $studentTwoGPA == 4.0)
{
   echo "$studentOneName made the  Honor Roll\n";
  // echo "$studentTwoName made the  Honor Rolls";

}
elseif($studentOneGPA != 4.0) {

   echo "$studentOneName has a $studentOneGPA of $studentTwoGPA\n"; 
 //  echo "$studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGPA";

}

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) //|| $studentTwoGPA == 4.0)
{
   echo "<p> $studentTwoName made the  Honor Roll\n";
  // echo "$studentTwoName made the  Honor Rolls";

}
elseif($studentTwoGPA != 4.0){

   echo "<p> $studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGPA\n </p><br>";

If you check the preview, your line:

echo "$studentOneName has a $studentOneGPA of $studentTwoGPA\n"

returns "Dave has a 3.8 of 4.0" - you need to replace $studentOneGPA with just GPA as text
