local computer = require ("computer")
print("What's The Password?")
local password = io.read()
-- # HERE is the missing end. Also, use the '==' for equality and single '=' for assignment
-- # Also to note, io.read returns a string. password == 123 will error comparing a string to a number.
-- # Use password = tonumber(password) or convert the right side of the comparison to a string with tostring(123)
-- # if password == "123" then ... or password == tostring(123) ... or tonumber(password) == 123 ...
if password == "123" then -- # I just put the pass in quotes to keep it simple.
	print("Password Accepted")
-- end # bad end here too
else
	print("Password Denied")
	os.sleep(2)
	computer.stop()
end -- # end goes here
