You must specify what you are comparing in order to complete the boolean expression. elif user_bmi >= 18.5 or < 25: Should be: elif user_bmi >= 18.5 or user_bmi < 25: Also, there is no need to check if user_bmi >= 18.5 since at this point in the logic you already established that it is not < 18.5. Now you only need to check if it is < 25. if user_bmi < 18.5: print("Underweight") elif user_bmi < 25: print("Normal") The same improvement applies to the 30 threshold. The final elif should be a simple else.

Preeyansh Tibrewal , there is also a issue with the logical operator in the conditional statements. we can not use *or* to build this logic, it needs to be *and* . to reduce the confusion, here is the complete code: weight = int(input()) height = float(input()) user_bmi = weight / height ** 2 if user_bmi < 18.5: print("Underweight") elif user_bmi >= 18.5 and user_bmi < 25: print("Normal") elif user_bmi >= 25.0 and user_bmi < 30: print("Overweight") elif user_bmi >= 30.0: print("Obesity")
