Ternary statement in arrays challenge task.

Hi, I just wrote ternary statement using formula from previous video of arrays but i get alert ''did you include boolean expression to evaluate?" i dnt actually understand what i have been asked to do :(

CodeChallenge.cs
int value = -1;
string textColor = null;

if (value < 0)
{
    textColor = "red";
}
else
{
    textColor = "green";
}


//ternary if statement
{
return (value<0)? _textColor ="red" : textColor="green";
}

I haven't done the challenge, but I'm guessing they expect you to do it one of these two ways -

{
textColor = value < 0 ? "red" : "green";
}

OR

{
return value < 0 ? "red" : "green";
}
