It depends on which version of Python you are using, so we can't help until we know that. Print "x" to see what it contains. Also your indentation is off, but I am assuming that is a copy/paste error and not in the program.

I'm using python 3.2. The indentation is off because I copy and pasted it out of a program.

you may want to try raw_input() instead of input()

  2. if x == "very good":        
  3.         print("Good Im Glad To Hear That!")
  4. else:
  5.         print("I'm Sorry!")

Python 2.7 or 3.2? We need details like that since assignments can work diff between the versions.
