Basic JavaScript - Escape Sequences in Strings

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

the test is
myStr should not contain any spaces

myStr should contain the strings FirstLine, SecondLine and ThirdLine (remember case sensitivity)

FirstLine should be followed by the newline character \n

myStr should contain a tab character \t which follows a newline character

SecondLine should be preceded by the backslash character \

There should be a newline character between SecondLine and ThirdLine

myStr should only contain characters shown in the instructions

and my answer is

const myStr = "\t\nFirstLine\n\\SecondLine\nThirdLine";
// Change this line

can you tell me what is wrong here.
