It is the backslash - you’re missing some. Each escape sequence starts with backslash. You have to insert four so you need at least four backslashes that will not appear in your string.

Read the instructions about how to insert a backslash into string with an escape sequence.

(Because the backslash is itself the indicator of an escape sequence you have to handle backslash as an escape sequence.)

In below line you are to replace with the indicated escape sequence.

Good luck!
