The platform used is linux system...The program will reads in user input on birth year and prints out the corresponding
Chinese horoscope sign. The program allows a user to enquire about horoscope signs until a
sentinel value of ? is used to terminate the process. There are 12 signs in the Chinese
horoscope. The calculation of a horoscope sign is based on birth year. The 12 Chinese horoscope
signs and some of their corresponding years are given below:
Horoscope Sign Birth Year
Rat 1972, 1984, 1996?
Cow 1973, 1985, 1997?
Tiger 1974, 1986, 1998?
Rabbit 1975, 1987, 1999?
Dragon 1976, 1988, 2000?
Snake 1977, 1989, 2001?
Horse 1978, 1990, 2002?
Goat 1979, 1991, 2003?
Monkey 1980, 1992, 2004?
Rooster 1981, 1993, 2005?
Dog 1982, 1994, 2006?
Pig 1983, 1995, 2007?

The year of the input does not only applies to the date shown above only... for example if the input for birth year is 1876, it shld display rat horoscope ...

You can do this:

String[] values = {"Monkey", "Rooster", "Dog", "Pig", "Rat", "Cow", "Tiger", "Rabbit", "Dragon", "Snake", "Horse", "Goat"};
int yearOfBirth = 2006 // or any other value;
String value = values[yearOfBirth % 12];
