I just noticed that it isn’t necessary to call twice the shorthand <?=, but the exercise demands it be so. I think the criteria should be a little more flexible. For example, i did the following:

We sell <?=$brands . " brands of " . $type?>

And got the same results as the intended solution, but my solution was “wrong” because i didn’t call twice the shorthand operator <?=. Or at least put the word “twice” in the instructions, so it becomes clear WHAT is needed to pass the exercise.
