C# C# Objects Encapsulation and Arrays Ternary If

Getting errors each time I try to resolve this code challenge. I addressed the Boolean expression error to get another

I've tried this Code Challenge a few times and I've been getting different errors. I reviewed the other similar questions and perhaps I'm misunderstanding a concept somewhere. The error I'm getting now is "Bummer: Did you include the "red" and "green" string literal expressions (separated by a colon) to the right of the ternary operator?"

Can someone point out where my code is off and why?

Thanks so much!

int value = -1;
string textColor = null;

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