Here is the full question
Suppose that a student has the option of enrolling for a single elective during a term. The student must select a course from a limited list of options: “English,” “History,” “Biology,” “Computer,” or “Math.” Construct a fragment of MATLAB code that will prompt the student for his or her choice, read in the choice, and use the answer as the case expression for a switch construct. Be sure to include a default case to handle invalid inputs. Testing three cases: (a) Computer (b) Physics (c) Biology.
Now the problem is the first part i dont understand the "Construct a fragment of MATLAB code that will prompt the student for his or her choice, read in the choice," part. I know how to do the case expression part.
I dont want you guys to do the problem for me just guide me. Plz Love you all <3

Did you happen to find menu() in the help? Try this:
button = menu('Select a class', '(a) Computer', ' (b) Physics', '(c) Biology');
switch button
.... more code.....

I like Image Analyst's suggestion because a multiple-choice UI eliminate the need to check for bad input, but your professor might be looking for the input function, used to gather textual input in the Command Window.
Have fun.
