if statement with multiple conditions

I'm trying to create a program that outputs your zodiac animal based on the year you're born in. I've tried a few things but no matter what year I enter, the outputted message is always the first cout message.



This part of the code I'm try to fix:

if (bornYear>=1900 && bornYear<=2019)
{
if (bornYear==1924||1936||1948||1960||1972||1984||1996||2008)
cout<<"Your lucky Chinese Zodiac Animal is Pig\nYour personailty could be quick-witted, resourceful, versatile and kind.";
else if (bornYear==1925||1937||1949||1961||1973||1985||1997||2009)
cout<< "Your lucky Chinese Zodiac Animal is Ox\nYour personailty could be diligent, dependable, strong and determined.";
else if (bornYear==1926||1938||1950||1962||1974||1986||1998||2010)
cout<< "Your lucky Chinese Zodiac Animal is Tiger\nYour personailty could be Brave, confident and competitive.";

}

Thanks
