What I have tried:

I have tried using what visual studio suggested but it gives me more errors. I just want this one error to resolve. How do I do that.

This line if (studentScore < 0 || > 1000) should be

if (studentScore < 0 || studentScore > 1000)
   
Just to explain Bryian'c solution a little: '||' is the conditional OR operator, and it takes two bool values and returns a bool result:
C#
bool result = a || b;
Where the result is true if either or both operands is true and false otherwise:
result   a      b
false    false  false
true     false  true
true     true   false
true     true   true
In C#, it is also defined that the condition a will be evaluated first, and if true, the condition b will not be evaluated at all (this is important later on)
So when you write an if condition that includes the OR operator, the left and right sides must be complete expressions which result in a bool value.

There is also an AND operator '&&' which returns true if both operands are true and false otherwise:
result   a      b
false    false  false
false    false  true
false    true   false
true     true   true
This also only evaluates b if a is true.
