Used a similar setup to the other task like this one, and then just added a negative counter. It all worked perfectly and 0 didn't count for either, and yet it kept failing for some reason. Looked at the solution and it's pretty much the same. Oh well.

The correct solution states
``````if (number1 > 0) {
...
} else if (number1 < 0) {
...
}``````
and I wrote the code as
``````if(a>0)
{
...
}
else
{
...
}``````
The output was the same and it was correct, however the task status stated "task failed". the difference I see is the use of else if vs my way of using just else. I don't understand the difference... can any one shed some light on this.

I have a good result (not counting zero as negative or positive) but I am still not able to pass condition "Note that "0" is not a positive or negative number".

Just use the > 0 and < 0 conditions to add to the counter variables' values.
