We are not going to do your homework for you, buddy, screaming in CAPS
LOCK is not going to help anything. And it is only urgent because you
started doing your homework late, there are only volunteers here that
are not in a hurry to help you. Anyhow, you might start by typing
'help while' and 'help input' in your matlab prompt ...

fada:
Type this on the MATLAB command line:
>> doc questdlg
Get their input string, convert it to a number, and use that number as
the index to a 1 by 4 array that contains the number of responses for
the various beverages.
Next time choose a better subject line and get an earlier start on
your homework so that it is not so urgent.
Good luck,
