APIs Introduction to GraphQL Reusable GraphQL Variables Review

In the GraphQL question s4:e6 the query variable seems to be a erroneous JSON object

Which of the following values will be sent to our backend for the "year" argument?

The following code is given:

/** Query */
query ($year:Int = 2017) {
    randomMovieByYear (
        year: $year
    ) {

/** Query variables */
    year: 2016

The accepted answer is 2016.

However, in the JSON object, the key year should have double quotes around it, shouldn't it?

So isn't the answer to this particular question the default 2017?
