int temperature = int.Parse(input);
if (temperature < 21)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Too cold!");
}
else if (temperature == 21)

According to the chart in the instructions, you should get "just right" for both 21 and 22.

Also, you don't need a third "if". The last case can be handled by a plain "else".
