Hi, I just wanted to ask for some help. I am a beginner on C# and I am practicing with the switch statement. Thank you!

1 solution

Look at your code:
C#
static int Getanswer(char answer)
    {
    string result;  
    ...
    return result;
    }
Your method is defined as returning an integer, but you are explicitly telling it to return a string. You can't do that: change the definition of the method to return a string and that'll fix it:
C#
static string Getanswer(char answer)
    {
    string result;  
    ...
    return result;
    }
