Build CAML Query Dynamically based on Passing Parameters to the Query in SharePoint.

string camlQuery = CreateCAMLQuery(parameters); 
private static string CreateCAMLQuery(string[] parameters)
        {
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); 
            if (parameters.Length == 0)
            {
                AppendEQ(sb, "all", "all");
            }
            for (int i = 0; i < parameters.Length; i += 2)
            {
                AppendEQ(sb, parameters[i], parameters[i + 1]);
                if (i > 0)
                {
                    sb.Insert(0, "<And>");
                    sb.Append("</And>");
                }
            }
            sb.Insert(0, "<Where>");
            sb.Append("</Where>"); 
            return sb.ToString();
        }

        private static void AppendEQ(StringBuilder sb, string column, string value)
        {
            sb.Append("<Eq>");
            if (column == "state")
            {
                sb.Append("<FieldRef Name='state'/>");
                sb.AppendFormat("<Value Type='Lookup'>{0}</Value>", value);
            }
            if (column == "City")
            {
                sb.Append("<FieldRef Name='City'/>");
                sb.AppendFormat("<Value Type='Lookup'>{0}</Value>", value);
            }
            if (column == "VehicleMake")
            {
                sb.Append("<FieldRef Name='VehicleMake'/>");
                sb.AppendFormat("<Value Type='Choice'>{0}</Value>", value);
            }
            if (column == "GarageType")
            {
                sb.Append("<FieldRef Name='GarageType'/>");
                sb.AppendFormat("<Value Type='Choice'>{0}</Value>", value);
