That's not how Lua works. You need to compare the variable with each value you want to check. e.g.

if line == "yes" or line == "y" then

You can also use the lower method to make this a bit simpler:

if line:lower() == "y" then

That can also be written as follows:

if string.lower(line) == "y" then

You probably should read the Lua Manual. Just select the version that the CPU your computer has is using (Either 5.2 or 5.3. Hover over it to see).
