\( ) is for variables.

so the plain text is just as plain text within the double quotes.

like this:

// Enter your code below
let name = "Damian"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

This practice is called "string interpolation". Every language has their own way of doing it. If you ever forget how to do it or want to learn how to do it in a language you're not familiar with you can google "string interpolation in <language>"

Thanks, really appreciate it : )
