Switch case in jquery

Am I writing the correct switch case?

var cnt = $("#div1 p").length;
alert(cnt);
switch (cnt) {
case (cnt >= 10 && cnt <= 20):
alert('10');
break;
case (cnt >= 21 && cnt <= 30):
alert('21');
break;
case (cnt >= 31 && cnt <= 40):
alert('31');
break;
default:
alert('>41');
}


For some reason, the alert does not occur when the conditions are matched!

Answer

You should not use switch for this scenario. This is the proper approach:

var cnt = $("#div1 p").length;

alert(cnt);

if (cnt >= 10 && cnt <= 20)
{
   alert('10');
}
else if (cnt >= 21 && cnt <= 30)
{
   alert('21');
}
else if (cnt >= 31 && cnt <= 40)
{
   alert('31');
}
else 
{
   alert('>41');
}
