confused about the answer of 'Write out the template tag that let's you echo out the title of a post or page'

the answer is 'the_title' however the WP Codex says 'Displays or returns the title of the current post' but our questions asks for the title of the post OR page. Is this some sort of Wordpress Colloquialism that states that a post is basically a page or am I missing something else?

Yes, a "Page" is a type of post. It can be a bit confusing at first, but WordPress states this: "WordPress can hold and display many different types of content. A single item of such a content is generally called a post...". Therefore, "Pages", "Posts", and "Attachments" are all examples post types in WordPress. The WP Codex page on Post Types is here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types
