can anyone tell me why this has errors?

For your assignment you are writing a number guessing game; with a twist. In your game, they are calculations where the user must guess the missing number(s). The Computer guesses a random calculation "Value1 Operator Value2 = Answer." The computer randomly displays two of the four objects. The Player must guess the remaining two objects. If the player gets one right then the computer says "one is right." The game should continue until the user has provided all the correct calculations.

Please tell us what the errors specifically are, if you would like help figuring out where they come from. Are they compilation errors? Are they run-time errors? Also please properly indent your code to make it more readable or link to pastebin or a similar service.
