Quiz for Substring Matching Attribute Selectors

Okay....so I got the code structure right...but not filled in blank?

Here are the questions:

The __________ character is used to select an element whose attribute value ends with the specified substring.

I said this is the Ends with Selector and I typed the exact same name...and I got wrong.. I even took out the capitalization or quotation marks...still wrong..

The ______________ character is used to select an element whose attribute value contains at least one instance of the specified substring.

I said this is Contain Selector. I typed the exact same words and I still got wrong...I took out the quotation marks and capitalization as well...still got it wrong...

Anyone had this problem before?

Try using the actual symbol you use in that selector

The answer to the first question is << $ >>, and the answer to the second question is << * >> .

In the teachers notes it shows what symbols are used for: begins with, ends with, etc.

The ^ , $, # I believe they were. (Not respectively)
