I did the following for the follow up/review activity but I don’t understand the boolean function. Can someone please help?

main() {

// Write your code below

var band = “Christine and the Queens”


val songDuration = 3.5


var songchoice: Boolean = true

songchoice = true


Thanks so much!

You can take it like in the introduction its mentioned that if boolean value is true means u are able to identify the song choice , depending upon your choice of song if u are able to decide so true or if not so false so u can take it in a general manner respectively.
Tried my best to make it clear in a simple learning way
