Unexpected "{" i need help.

I don't see what is wrong with this code. It just tells me there is a compiler error "Unexpected {"

CodeChallenge.cs
string input = Console.ReadLine();
int temperature = int.Parse(input);
if (temperature < 21)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too cold!");
}
else if (temperature == 21 && 22)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Just right.");
}
else (temperature > 22)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too hot!");
}

else if (temperature == 21 && 22)

here you need to type like this --> else if (temperature > 21 && temperature <22)

  1. Your else if statement should check if temperature is greater than or equal to 21 and temperature is less than or equal to 22.
  2. The else statement at the end is for "everything else," it doesn't take a condition; the parentheses and everything inside can be deleted on that line.
