Hi Dennis!

I'm guessing that you're referring to the correct syntax when referencing different data types in JavaScript. If that is the case, then you are correct! To reiterate, the proper syntax would be:

  • STRING | "Here are characters that otherwise would not be interpreted by JS."
    • Quotation marks are always necessary
    • Can be any combination of numbers, letters, or symbols
  • NUMBER | 56 75 2006 1
    • No quotation marks
    • Must consist of only numbers
  • BOOLEAN true false
    • No quotation marks
    • Must be either true or false

Here's a little bit more about primitive data types if you're interested. Happy coding!
