namespace dotnet_sample
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //1

            Console.WriteLine("Enter a number : ");
            //3
            n = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
            //4
            if(n == 0)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(n + " is zero.");
            }
            else if(n > 0)
            {
                //5
                Console.WriteLine(n + " is a positive number.");
            }
            else
            {
                //6
                Console.WriteLine(n + " is a negative number.");
            }
        }
    }
}

 

Explanation :

The commented numbers in the above program denote the step numbers below :

  1. Create one integer n to read the user input.
  2. Ask the user to enter a number.
  3. Read the number and store it in ‘n’.
  4. Check if the value of ‘n’ is 0 or not. If yes, print out that it is zero.
  5. Else check if it is greater than 0 or not. If yes, print out that it is a positive number.
  6. Else print that it is a negative number.

 

Sample Output :

Enter a number :
0
0 is zero.

Enter a number :
-23
-23 is a negative number.

Enter a number :
45
45 is a positive number.
