    Default Nested Statements problem

    Hello, I'm new to Java and working on a Nested Statements section of a beginner's Java course. Please help me identify the problem in my code as I have been through it multiple times and can't figure it out. Thanks in advance.

    The error message is: FinishLine.java:63: error: reached end of file while parsing } ^ 1 error

    This is my code

    import java.util.Scanner;
    /****************
     * Alex
     * FinishLine.java
     * 04/09/2023
     * *************/
    public class FinishLine {
     
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        //Variables
        int speed = 0;
        int min = 0;
        int max = 10;
     
        //Scanner
        Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
     
        //Ask for user input
        System.out.println("Enter an integer between 0 and 10 for the speed of the car!");
     
        //Read in input
     
        //Random number
        int pressure = ((int) (Math.random() * ((max - min) + 1))) + min;
    	pressure = 1;
        /****************************************************
    	 * Compare speed to engine pressure which is a random number
    	 * if speed is equal to pressure then print out "Game over!"
    	 * else if speed is NOT equal to the pressure ask for new number
    	 * If the speed isn't equal to the pressure 3 times then Derrik crosses the finish line.
    	 ****************************************************/
        if(speed == pressure) {
          System.out.println("Game Over!");
          System.out.println("Engine pressure " + pressure);
        }
        else if(speed != pressure) {
          //Ask for user input for 2nd time
          System.out.println("Almost there, enter another integer between 0 and 10 for the speed of the car!");
     
          //Read in input for 2nd time
     
     
          if(speed == pressure) {
            System.out.println("Game Over!");
            System.out.println("Engine pressure " + pressure);
          }
          else {
            //Ask for user input for 3rd time
            System.out.println("Get across that finish line! Enter an integer between 0 and 10 for the speed of the car!");
     
            speed = input.nextInt();
            System.out.println("Speed " + speed);
            pressure = 0;
     
            //add nested if statement below
            if(speed == pressure) {
            System.out.println("Game Over");
            System.out.println("Engine pressure " + pressure);
            }
          else {
            System.out.println("Congrats! Derrick made it across the finsh line!");
            System.out.println("Engine pressure " + pressure);
          }

    error: reached end of file while parsing }
    Are the { and }s properly matched? Check that there is one } for every {

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
