It's not clear what course and lesson you are referring to. You might want to take a look at this video about Posting a Question.

But for starters, favorite_color = ("Green", and "Blue") isn't proper syntax. If you really want to include both items as your favorite color, they need to be combined into a single string, like this: favorite_color = "Green and Blue". But that's complicating the exercise, as favorite_color would normally be assigned a string naming a single color.

Add a link to the course page and I can give a more detailed and specific answer.

technically correct, but not a great answer. the syntax is wrong yes. but the code is correct. and is usable just in && form.

Jacob Todd: I don't know what you mean by "is usable just in && form" ... are you perhaps thinking of a different language?

the word and isn't typically used in any form of programming. most professional programmer's use the ampersand.

You are for sure thinking of another language!
This question is about the Python language, where and is a valid keyword but && is not valid.
