Linux script execution with user input conditions

Dear experts,


I have below scripts which has 4 program function which need to be executed based on input from terminal.


Like below



echo " Choose Complete Single Cmd as CMD or ALL : ALL or CMD?"
Here if enter any other value than ALL or CMD ..Script should end and exit.

If user enter ALL


then all 4 program function should execute.
If user enter CMD
then again from below menu user need to select option

Select the HC CMD to execute and analyse
A. State"
B. active"


If choose A


then function program "function Exe_Cmd_State" should execute
if choose B
then "function Exe_Cmd_active" should execute.
If put other value than A and B then script should stop and exit.


I have executed but getting error mentioned as below





Code:
function Exe_Cmd_State(){
                echo "#####################################################Prints the cluster status#######################################"
                echo "Executing Status..." 
                sleep 1
                echo "Done..."
                }
function Exe_Cmd_active(){
                echo "###########################################To check Active Alarms####################################################"
                echo "Executing active..."
                sleep 1
                echo "Done..."
                }

function Analysis_Cmd_state(){
               
echo ""
echo ""########################################
echo ""#   State
echo ""########################################

echo ""############ DONE #########################
                }
