It is too simplistic to provide accurate answers and contains some logical errors that need fixing. In order to generate more accurate answers, you need to know how to compare values and specify different courses of action based on the results. The code construction that allows us to do this is called a conditional statement. Conditional statements transform the script from being just a list of instructions to something that can make decisions on the fly based on the information that it receives.
