I am not sure what this problem is asking us to do. Written in a confusing way.

Not sure what is being asked in question 2

$a = "5";
$isBoolean = true;
$string = "5";

var_dump ($a === $string);
$isIdentical = true;

the challenge is asking to assign the comparison to the variable $isIdentical.

So $isIdentical will then be comparing the integer 5 assign $a to the string value of '5', which with a strict comparison it should return false as its not the same type.

$isBoolean = true;
$isIdentical = $a === '5';

Hope this helps
