Write a function called eligible that helps the admission officer of the Graduate School of Vanderbilt University decide whether the applicant is eligible for admission based on GRE scores. The function takes two positive scalars called v and q as input and returns the logical admit as output. They represent the percentiles of the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE respectively. You do not need to check the inputs. The applicant is eligible if the average percentile is at least 92% and both of the individual percentiles are over 88%. The function returns logical true or false value.
function ans=eligible(v,q);
if v>=92 && q>=88;
ans=true
else
ans=true
end

First off, you have ans set to true in both cases. So change the else statement to be equal to false. Other than that your function should work.
Then call the function like this:
or if you are looping through a database:
answer = double(num); % Where num is the number of applicants
for i = 1:num
answer(i) = eligible(v(i),q(i)); % Where v and q are arrays of data.
end
