It would be helpful to highlight the correct answer and offer some sort of explanation instead of just saying "wrong"...

Well we can help if you are stuck just post the code and challenge :D You would not be learning as much if the program just told you the answer and explanation. These exercises force you to think and seek out help externally. For example, it makes you look at documentation or compiler errors (debugging) which you should be making a habit of. If you learn the answer and explanation, chances are you will be like "oh ok" and move on (not saying this is you). This is bad practice as you will never even attempt to practice and hone your skills as a developer. The answer to your mistake lies in the compiler and the ability to interpret that mistake is in the documentation.
