You did add a ternary expression, but:

  • you have a close parenthesis, but forgot the open parenthesis to go with it
  • you added a <label> tag set around the field title, but that wasn't asked for by the challenge

then it should be changed, but it still does not work and I can not see the error

@model Treehouse.Models.VideoGame

@{
    ViewBag.PageTitle = "Video Game Detail";
}

<h1>@Model.Title</h1>

<h5>Favorite: @(Model.Favorite ? "yes" : "no")</h5>

<h5>Description:</h5>
<div>@Model.Description</div>

<h5>Characters:</h5>
<div>
    <ul>
        @foreach (var character in Model.Characters)
        {
            <li>@character</li>
        }
    </ul>
</div>

I have solved it, yes and no should be with a capital letter, Yes, No

Good job. :+1:

And yes, those challenges are picky about outputs, particularly literal strings.
