Are you referring to the first question, which concatenates strings?

action = "got" # saves the string 'got' to the action variable
exclamation = "You " + action # creates a string variable called exclamation and combines 'You ' and action (which has a value of 'got')
exclamation += " this!" # += is short-hand for setting something to it's current value, plus whatever you're adding - in this case, the string ' this!'
print(exclamation) # print out the current value of exclamation, after all the code above has been executed

Hopefully that answers your question, but if that isn't the quiz you're referring to or if you have any follow-up, let me know and I'll be happy to help. If you need assistance with something you're working on in workspaces, please post a snapshot using the camera icon towards the top-right of the workspace. Happy coding!
