" " or ' ' Single quote or double quote?

Hi classmates,

def print_list(list)
    puts "List: #{list['name']}"
    puts "---"

    list["items"].each do |item|
        puts "item " + item['name']
        puts "Quantity" + item['quantity'].to_s
        puts "---"



why I cant use double quote across for all method? what's the difference between using single quote and double quote?

Thank you

Hi pkevinliu Use double quotes when you want to do string interpolation.......

a = 2
puts "#{a}"
rowend rowend
rowend rowend

You could use double quotes to include string interpolation and to include white spaces as \n
