These if statements are causing error: ';' expected IF (answer1 != "even") {
                                                               

                                                
IF (answer1 != "even") {
    bPassed = false;
}
IF (answer2 != "yes") {
    bPassed = false;
}
IF (answer3 != "1") {
    bPassed = false;
}

Question: Why this code shows this error?

Please see the attached files.

Thank you.

if should be all lowercase and you should use equals to compare Strings as below:

                              if (!"even".equals(answer1)) {
                                    bPassed = false;
                              }
                              if (!"yes".equals(answer2)) {
                                    bPassed = false;
                              }
                              if (!"1".equals(answer3)) {
                                    bPassed = false;
                              }

I hope this helps.

The wdosanjos' comment is correct. I would add the following: because of the uppercase you used for the "if" statement, the compiler treats it as a method call having a boolean as argument. Therefore, it expects a semicolon to end this method call.

wdosanjos and ioanton,

Thank you for the comments.

Because I switch back and for from ,net to java, I sometimes make mistakes like this.
