Sending Data with Get requests

No even sure how to answer this quiz and I've watched the video three times..

GET /books______kindle________type or something like that..

from the video format should be something like:

GET /get?..........&.............. where ....... is the content you want in JSON format. I tried just putting a ? and a & above but that didn't seem to work.. There was no example given that all that similar to the question
