What is the answer to this quiz. I have tried all the symbols and even queries in it, like books?type=Fiction&kindle=

Please tell me a solution to this quiz problem. I have tried all the possibilities. Also, question is quite unclear as what it is asking me to do?

Would anybody please help?

Hi Shailesh,

The question is a bit confusing, but it is basically asking you to fill in the missing symbols of the query string. Each space will only need a single symbol.

Remember that a query string begins with a question mark (?), variables are defined with equal signs (=) and variables themselves are separated by ampersands (&). "type" and "sort" are both variables names, "kindle" and "popular" are values.

Hope this clears things up.

Yipee! Thank you very much Ryan, your solution really worked. I was very confused about this problem. Kudos to you.

I would recommend re-watching the videos and keeping close attention :)

You could re-watch the video a hundred times and still not get this question.....<eye roll>
