I have a #temp table with 3 columns : A1, B1 and C1
and a table named Basis in databaset with 3 columns:A2, B2 and C2

I want to update tha table on database based on values of temp as following:

update Basis set

C2 = (select a.C1 from #temp where #temp.A1 =Basis.A2),

B2 =(case when (Basis.C2 <=3 and (select a.B1 from #temp3 a where #temp.A1 =Basis.A2) <= 0.05 )then 1 else 0 end)
else 1 end)

It shows: Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'else'..
Any ideas about the mistake?

In your second statement you updating B2 based on the existing value of Basis.C2 or the value as it exists after you have performed the first update (i.e., setting C2 to the value from #temp?) The following assumes the latter:
	c2 = t.c1,
	b2 = CASE WHEN T.c1 <= 3 AND b1 < 0.05 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END 
	#temp T
	INNER JOIN Basis b ON T.A1 = b.A2;
