After several times through that quiz I came across that question with the following answers available:

A var str = "This isn\'t my car!";

B var str = "This isn't my car!";

C var str = 'This isn\'t my car!';

D var str = 'This isn't my car!';

They are all different, there are either single or double quotes being used, along with the various escape sequences. Of those listed here, only B, the correct answer in my rendition of the quiz, works.

Ah, I think I didn't look at the answers well enough. In my version I saw two of these:

var str = "This isn\'t my car!";

I understand now. Thanks!
