# Pascal help required for noob

I am new to programming and therefore this is probably an easy problem to solve, i have been asked to write a school timetable program which displays which lesson is at a user specified time in the week. Could someone please show me where this is wrong because the selections for monday are being used for every day (this should become clearer when the code is read) Thank You very much for any support you could give to me in solving this problem.

If-then statements only run the first line after the then, until the semi-colon (;). To include more statements in an if-then statement, you should use begin-end. Example: See the difference between these two:
[code]
var
i: integer;
begin
if i = 0 then
writeln('Is only shown if i = 0');
writeln('Is always shown');
end;
[/code]
[code]
var
i: integer;
begin
if i = 0 then
begin
writeln('Is only shown if i = 0');
writeln('Is also only shown if i = 0');
end;
end;
[/code]
