So in the exercise it said this was the correct answer

let favoritePhrase = ‘Love That!’;

favoritePhrase === ‘Love That!’ ? console.log(‘I love that!’) : console.log(“I don’t love that!”);

how come it still goes through when the favoritePhrase equals something different then what the console has in it. The only difference is the ‘I’. How come it still goes through when the favoritePhrase doesn’t equal whats in the console?
