&& is the operator for and, so that won't work since they're looking for either of them to be true.

|| should be the correct answer. I tried copy-pasting your answer into the quiz and it failed. Confirm you're using two of the same | character and try it again. This is probably located on *Shift-* on your keyboard. Looking at your answer, it seems like they may not be the same character?

Yes the || was correct ..I had figured out my error after I sent the question. Thanks.
