int main()
{
    printf("Abundantcode.com coding sample\n");
    char input;
    int lowercaseValue, uppercaseValue;

    printf("Enter an alphabet: ");
    scanf("%c",&input);

    lowercaseValue = (input == 'a' || input == 'e' || input == 'i' || input == 'o' || input == 'u');

    uppercaseValue = (input == 'A' || input == 'E' || input == 'I' || input == 'O' || input == 'U');

    if (lowercaseValue || uppercaseValue)
        printf("%c is a Vowel.", input);
    else
        printf("%c is a Consonant.", input);
