    Default Issue with running DataGimmick program

    good day all,
    i am having an issue with running my program, i am not sure where i have gone wrong, i would appreciate it if someone could help me asap.

    Thank you

    here is what i was instructed to do:
    You are to write a program for the DataGimmick wireless data provider company. The company
    has three possible plans that consumers can sign up for, as follows:
    Package: Monthly Fee: Included MB: Cost Per Additional (up to) 150 MB:
    A $9.99 150 14.99
    B $24.99 500 12.99
    C $39.99 2000 8.99
    Note that additional data beyond the “Included MB” may only be bought in increments of 150MB,
    even if only a portion as little as 1 additional MB is used.
    Your task is to write a program that:
    • prompts the user for and reads in the exact number of MB of data they used (which cannot
    have a fractional portion).
    • prompts the user to enter the letter corresponding to their plan and reads in that plan’s letter.
    • prints out the total monthly charge (in dollars and cents) for data usage for that user, based
    on what they entered.

    here is my code:
    import java.util.*;
     
    public class DataGimmick
    {
     
     
     
       public static void main(String [] args)
       {
    	  public static void main(String [] args)
       {
    	   double cost;
    		   int data;
    		   double fee;
    		   double additional;
    		   Scanner myReader = new Scanner(System.in);
    		   char A;
    		   char B;
    		   char C;
    		   String option;
    		   // Prompt User for the data usage.
    		   System.out.print("How Much Data Did You Use?");
    		   data = myReader.nextInt();
     
    			// Prompt User for the package plan.
    		   System.out.print("Which Plan Are You Using?");
    		   myReader.next();
     
     
     
     
    	   //Calculate the cost for different packages.
     
    	   if (option A);
    	   {   
     
    		   fee = (data - 150) / 150;
    		   cost = fee * 9.99;
    	   }   
     
     
    	   if ((data - 150) % 150 != 0);   
    	   {   additional = cost + 14.99;
     
    	   }
     
     
    	   if (option = B);
    	   {
     
    	       fee = (data - 500) / 500;
    	       cost = fee * 24.99;
    	   }
     
    	   {
    	   if ((data - 500) % 500 != 0);   
    	   {   additional = cost + 12.99;
     
    	   }   
     
     
     
    	   if (option = C);
    	   {
     
    	       fee = (data - 2000) / 2000;
    	       cost = fee * 39.99;
    	   }
     
     
     
    	   if ((data - 2000) % 2000 != 0);   
    	   {   additional = cost + 8.99;
     
    	   }
     
     
    	 //Print out the total monthly charge for data.
    	   System.out.printf("Your bill for the month is $%,.2f\n", cost + additional); 
    	   }
        }
     
    }
