February 18 is a special date for the CCC this year.

Write a program that asks the user for a numerical month and numerical day of the month and then determines whether that date occurs before, after, or on February 18.

  • If the date occurs before February 18, output the word Before.
  • If the date occurs after February 18, output the word After.
  • If the date is February 18, output the word Special.

Input Specification

The input consists of two integers each on a separate line. These integers represent a date in 2015.

The first line will contain the month, which will be an integer in the range from 1 (indicating January) to 12 (indicating December).

The second line will contain the day of the month, which will be an integer in the range from 1 to 31. You can assume that the day of the month will be valid for the given month.

Output Specification

Exactly one of Before, After, or Special will be printed on one line.

        A NameError in Python occurs when you attempt to use a variable that hasn't been declared yet. In your submission, Feb was never declared anywhere.

    I passed all except case #6. I think it is because I am not able to get the "Special" output. I am sure I am missing something obvious.

    Edit: I figured it out!

    took me a lot longer than i thought it would. Make sure to include the instance where the month is feb and the day is less than the 18th and when it is feb and higher than 18th.

    Didn't even realize the outputs had to be capitalized.

      @12weareunited You put an else statement without referencing an if statement first. The answer is in the error: else without if.
