Set $booleanTwo equal to the result of comparing the variable $a as IDENTICAL to the string "5".

Create a new variable name $booleanTwo. Set $booleanTwo equal to the result of comparing the variable $a as IDENTICAL to the string "5".

index.php
<?php
$a = 5;
$booleanOne = true;



$bo

//Place your code below this comment

?>

It's simply saying assign the $booleanZTwo variable to $a. On a separate line, compare $a using the === (identical operator) to "5". The question is just worded weirdly.

Well there not much to tell there is no questions asked, I wrote everything in comments, maybe it will help to understand.

<?php
$a = 5;
//Place your code below this comment

// Create $booleanOne and set it to true
$booleanOne = true;
// Create $booleanTwo and set it result of coparing $a === "5"
// === is operator which checks two values if they are IDENTICAL
$booleanTwo = $a === "5";
?>
