What do you want to do with that string?

i want to set a default statement. that’s why i used that string

That string is just floating around doing nothing though

so what should i do to set the default statement

Which value do you want to set as the default value?

“stuff” is the value i want to set as defualt

what do you want to do with the string "stuff"? Do you want to assign this value to some variable or just print it to the console or something else?

Note: Here answer is a name of a variable.
