question in shell script

Hell guys,
I need a little help to solve this question

Write a Bourne shell script which:
Has one command line argument.
If the command line argument is a directory then the script should output the number of files in the directory.
If the command line argument is an ordinary file then the script should output whether or not the file has execute permission for the file owner.
If the command line argument is neither a file or directory then the script should output an appropriate error message.
If no command line argument is supplied then the script should output an appropriate error message.
