Code seems good to me, works in Repl, but "recheck work" disagrees with the feedback "Did you include the boolean expression to evaluate?"

int value = -1; string textColor = null; (value <0) ? textColor = "red" : textColor = "green";

// (value < 0) or value < 0 makes no difference. So yes, the boolean expression is there, before the question mark.

CodeChallenge.cs
int value = -1;
string textColor = null;
(value < 0) ? textColor = "red" : textColor = "green";

It looks like you need to write as:

textColor = (value < 0) ? "red" : "green";

You are right Mark; that did pass the test. Assigning a value IN a 'ternary if' is also less readable then assigning the value OF a 'ternary if' to a variable. Less error prone too. Good solution.

If that automatically means that this is 'ugly':

(value < 0) ? textColor1 =  "red" : textColor2 = "green";

and should be this:

if (value < 0)
  {
  textColor1 =  "red";
  }
else 
  {
  textColor2 =  "green";
  }

I do not know.
