1st case--(first 'if')First check if character(the Second parameter of classifyPerson method) is equal to the character 'M' or not.If it is equal to the character 'M',then check if the age of that male is greater than 25,if it is greater then result="Man",otherwise if age is less than or equal to 25,then the person is a boy,so result="Boy".The second case--(second 'if') is when the second parameter equals 'F'(Which means person is female),if it so,then check the age,if more than 20,then the person is women(So result="Woman" ),otherwise if age is less than or equal to  20 then result="Girl".

here we have 2 inputs from the User the Possible outputs are 4(Man,Woman,Girl,Boy)

here we have 2 possibilites male and female we can decide it using the second parameter

Case 1:
    if the given parameter is 'F' we can say output going to be Woman or Girl
        we can decide this by using the 1st parameter if the given age is greater than (age>20) than            the output is Woman(Assign result varible with "Woman") if not than out put is Girl(Assign result varible with "Girl")

case 2:
        if the Given Parameter is 'M' than we can sat output is either Man or Boy
         we can decide this by using the 1st parameter if the given age is greater than (age>25) than          the output is Man(Assign result varible with "Man") if not than out put is Boy(Assign result varible with "Boy")

in this program age and genders are user inputs.                                                           if we take checking age as 1st preference then we need to check 4 different conditions 1.age<20,2.age>20,3.age>25,4.age<25 for this we need 4 if conditions.atfer this each if conditions checks gender here we hve 2 possibilities male or female so each if conditions needs one if else condition to find output.                                                                                                                            example take 1st option if age<20 here we know output should be girl or boy so if gender F then output girl else boy.similarly for other conditions.                                              this type of checking needs 4 if conditions and 4 if else conditions.                                             if we take gender checking 1st preference then we need to check 2 differnt conditions 1.gender=='M',2.gender=='F',after checking this each if conditions checks age depends on gender .                                                                              example gender=='M' thn it is enough to check age>25 and age<25.                              so here 2 if conditions 2 ifelse conditions used.                                                                             for checking this gender 1st preference we can use following option also:                                        just use 1 if else condition for checking any one of the gender .                                       example if part checks 'M' then else part should chck 'F',thn inside if part give one if else to chck age >25 or <25.                                                                                else part if else condition chck age >20 or <20.                                                       by using this type we can eliminate many conditions,it needs only 3 if else conditions.                                                                                                                              so we need to select 1st checking preference to input which hs less possibilities of this program gender 2 possibilities age 4 checking 1st find gender then find boy,gir,woman,man from age
