Help, in Repl its correct. It gives me the right Result!

int value = -1; string textColor = null;

// if Value smaller then 0 then red, otherwise green

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

The challenge is being a bit pickier because there is a more correct way, style-wise, to do it. The ternary statement isn't meant for different code but for choosing different values. The assignment is expected to be outside the ternary, and the ternary provides the value for the assignment.

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