Hey, I am getting an error that says I should have a default statement, but Pasan says I do not need one with enums.

The error says "Switch must be exhaustive, consider adding a default clause".

Hey Ken!

This is because enums doesn't use the switch keyword, just the case one. That's why compiler must be asking you for a default case.

Good luck with that!
