I have a question, how can i use two different sets else if statements that will work properly? i tried it normally but the second set of else if statements dont work at all. please help. thanks

how to post it here? sorry i am just new in this forum.

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>
#include<time.h>
void main()
{
  int iBet,Random1,Random2;
  char red,blue,green,yellow,white,pink;
  char cColor;
  clrscr();
  printf("Enter the color you want to bet\n 1 for Red\n 2 for Blue\n 3 for Green\n 4 for Yellow\n 5 for White\n 6 for Pink : ");
  scanf(" %c",&cColor);
  printf("How much will you bet? :   ");
  scanf(" %d",&iBet);
  randomize();
  Random1=random(2);
  { if(Random1==1)
    puts("\n\n1st color: Red");
  else if(Random1==2)
    puts("\n\n1st color: Blue");
  else if(Random1==3)
    puts("\n\n1st color: Green");
  else if(Random1==4)
    puts("\n\n1st color: Yellow");
  else if(Random1==5)
    puts("\n\n1st color: White");
  else if(Random1==6)
    puts("\n\n1st color: Pink");
  }//rand if
  if(Random1==1&&cColor==1)
    puts("You win!");
  else if(Random1==2&&cColor==2)
    puts("You win!");
  else if(Random1==3&&cColor==3)
    puts("You win!");
  else if(Random1==4&&cColor==4)
    puts("You win!");
  else if(Random1==5&&cColor==5)
    puts("You win!");
  else if(Random1==6&&cColor==6)
    puts("You win!");
  else
    puts("\nBetter luck next time.");
  getch();
}

hey the random(2) their it should be random(7) i just forgot to change it. thanks

Theres Lots of unnecessary/uninitialized variables found in the code.

next here's the proper way of using the rand() function

  /* initialize random seed: */
  srand ( time(NULL) );

  /* generate number ranging from 1 - 7 */
  Random1 = rand() % 7 + 1; 

So what does it do wrong? To get help you need to post details, not just a vague "it doesn't work" message. We need to know how it fails in order to understand what "doesn't work" means.

also the following code is done wrong:

    printf("Enter the color you want to bet\n 1 for Red\n 2 for Blue\n 3 for Green\n 4 for Yellow\n 5 for White\n 6 for Pink : ");
    scanf(" %c",&cColor);

you want the user to input an integer yet your storing it in a character variable and later comparing the character variable to an integer

Either change :
char cColor;
scanf(" %c",&cColor);

to
int cColor;
scanf(" %d",&cColor);

OR

change all your conditions as follows:
else if(Random1==1&&cColor=='1')
