Challenge: Escaping Literal Quotes in Strings

Link to the challenge:

Could you elaborate on what you’re asking exactly?

Do you just want the two lines of code explained?


As the task describes:

In JavaScript, you can escape a quote from considering it as an end of string quote by placing a backslash ( \ ) in front of the quote.

In other words, you can cancel the functionality something might provide and have it treated like a literal character by putting a black slash infront of it.

The same as escaping markdown, for example.

This is italics, performed by putting an underscore before and after what I want to italicize.

_With a black slash infront, it cancels the behavior of the underscores._

What do you mean? I am bad at JS

She wasn’t commenting on your JS - it’s a spelling thing. The word is “quotes”, not “qoutes”.
