    Exclamation why if doesn't evaluate correctly?

    hello I was trying to evaluate something for my assignment and it doesn't seem to work right
    it keeps giving me the result of ELSE statement instead of the result in IF statement when I enter a negative number or out of range numbers
    can you check that for me guys! thank you in advance

    Java Code:
    import java.util.*; // Impport the scanner
    public class Date
        public static void main(String[] args)
    	// Declaring variables
    	int inputYear;
    	int inputMonth;
    	int inputDay;
    	String legal = "You've entered good Date ++++++++++++++++++++:)";
    	String illegal = "You've entered BAD Date----------------------!! ";
        // Prompting the user
        System.out.print("Please enter a month (1-12) and day (1-31) and year (1-4000):   "  );
    	//Using scanner class for the input
        Scanner kb = new Scanner(;
        inputMonth = kb.nextInt();
        inputDay = kb.nextInt();
        inputYear = kb.nextInt();
        System.out.print(" \n\n");
    	// A statement to be used as a condition for the user to  insert something  make sense(legal)
    	if((inputMonth < 0 && inputMonth > 12) && (inputDay < 0 && inputDay > 31) && (inputYear < 0 && inputYear > 4000))
