A little unclear from the exercise that you’re combining the assignment of a boolean variable with the result of a literal comparison.
A better example would be using two variables thru the whole thing as in
x = 17
y = 16
if x __ y
puts “test 1 is true”
y = 20
if x __ y
puts “test 2 is true”
y = -11
if x __ y
puts “test 3 is true”
y = 17
if x __ y
puts “test 4 is true”
Kind of the same problem with the ‘Equal or Not?’
