You will need to create separate if statements for each student

I am facing this error every time I try to add this if statement. Please find the attached file.

$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

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

//Place your code below this comment

if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0){

  echo "$studentTwoGPA made the Honor Roll" ;

elseif ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
echo   "ok";


else {

    echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";

You may need to re-read the question carefully. For this question you need to check each student independently, but your elseif statement only triggers if studentOneGPA is not 4.0.

Also, you reference studentTwoGPA inside of the studentOneGPA if statement.

Try and adapt the studentOne code below for studentTwo.

if($studentOneGPA == 4.0){
  echo "$studentOneName made the Honor Roll";
 echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";
