Your post doesn't tell us much.

Which selection statement? Did you start a program? Are you trying to create a program?

Please give us more details so we can adequately help you.

Is it C, shell scripting, anything else? You really can't program anything if you don't even know what programming language you will be using. If you let us know what programming language you are supposed to be using then we can suggest you some tutorial(s) so you can get started.

It seems like you weren't paying so much attention in the classroom
