    Post What is Wrong with my code

    well it works except it always shows the else part of the statement

    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.util.Random;
     
    public class eightball
    	{
     
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
    		Random random = new Random();
     
    		int z;
     
    		System.out.println("type in your yes or no question");
    		scan.nextLine();		
     
    		z = random.nextInt(20) + 1;
     
     
    		int w = (z);
    		System.out.println("the anser to your Question is ");
     
    		if (w < 4)
    		System.out.print("Yes.");
    		if (w < 8 && w > 4)
    		System.out.print(" No.");
    		if (w < 12 && w > 8)
    		System.out.print(" it could happen");
    		if (w < 16 && w > 12)
    		System.out.print(" can not tell");
    		else
    		System.out.print(" never");
     
    			}	
    }
