You have nested too many loops together. You really don’t want all of those loops nested in your solution.

Never seen a for loop pyramid of dome before. That looks scary.

As said, you will want to rethink your approach here.

Thanks, I found another solution which I don’t have to use loops nested in loop to search for equality

I have never seen that many loops in one place! I think your computer took one look and said
“Nope, Im not touching that with a 40 foot pole!”
