    What language do you need to use? The simplest way to do this is with an if-else statement if( /*<condition>*/ ) { //print .... } else { //print .... }

    I believe that it is supposed to be switch.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_flow -- All of the general flow control statements for most programming languages. A switch is not viable since you have two values Age1 and Age2, there's you wouldn't be able to compare both of those inside a switch, unless your programming language lets you do an evaluation inside a switch, though I don't think it's possible. Switches are for specific values on a single variable, let's say you expect age to be between 1-100 switch(Age1){ case 1: case 2: case 3: System.out.println("Toddler"); break; case 4: .... case 12: System.out.println("Kid"); break; case 13: ... case 18: System.out.println("Adolescent"); break; ...etc } Flow control for comparisons between two variables will usually be if-else
