Is this a bug?

It asked me if ('lion' > 'zebra') was true or false. I clicked true, since 'l' comes before 'z' and is greater. However, it gave me an error. Am I missing something?

Hi Omar,

Since 'l' comes before 'z', you should think of 'l' as being lower or less than 'z'

This question would be very similar to asking something like 4 > 10

Since 4 comes before 10, 4 would be considered lower or less than 10 and the expression would be false.
