Why the age part isn't giving any output?

name = 'Alice' age = 3000 if name == 'Alice': print ('Hi, Alice!') elif age < 12: print ('You are not Alice, kiddo') elif age > 2000: print ('Unlike you, Alice is not an undead, immortal vampire') elif age > 100: print ('You are not Alice, grannie')

Given Code: name = 'Alice' age = '3000' if name == 'Alice': print ('Hi, Alice!') if age < 12: print ('You are not Alice, kiddo') elif age > 2000: print ('Unlike you, Alice is not an undead, immortal vampire') elif age > 100: print ('You are not Alice, grannie') Rectified Code: name = 'Alice' age = 3000 if name == 'Alice': print ('Hi, Alice!') if age < 12: print ('You are not Alice, kiddo') elif age > 2000: print ('Unlike you, Alice is not an undead, immortal vampire') elif age > 100: print ('You are not Alice, grannie') Reason: In line two, age, you declared the value of age with '' which says the computer that it's a string and not a integer value. As now it's a Integer value the if and elif statements can't compare it.

Thankyou so much Frogged! I also removed *else* from 5th line of the corrected code by you. It works!

if name=='Alice' : if this is true then it won't go to execute else part. On false, it goes to check else part. In your case name=='Alice' is true so it won't check age<12 : So take else separate individual if part like if age<12 : so it is now not depend on previous if. And you are assign age = '3000' , now '3000' is a string type not number. Everything inside quotes is string type. So just do age=3000
