Objective-C Basics Challenge tast 1 of 4

I was able to write the correct code on the second attempt, but I would like to know why my first attempt was not correct.

The question Declare 2 separate variables of type char named "alpha" and "bravo". Assign the letter 'a' to the variable "alpha" and the letter 'b' to "bravo".

My answer (written in C, I couldn't get the markdown to accept this as code using the three back ticks ```)

char alpha[ ] = {a};

char bravo[ ] = {b};

This would have followed the example of what was taught. The answer that was accepted followed an example from the previous section.

Thank you ... Scott

Duh ... I just realized the answer ... it's because they were variable, and not arrays.
