Hey Pius,

Thank you for reaching out!

1. The reason you are getting the error is because you haven't provided a number, but rather an empty string. Please, study the code snippet below:
2. Usually, when you write quotation marks, you need two - an opening and a closing one. That is why when you type a single quotation mark, the second one appears automatically. That makes coding easier and prevents syntax errors. I am actually unaware of a way to type a single quotation mark.

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,
