A pound sign does not begin a valid comment in JavaScript (it does in some other languages, though).

But there are two correct comments in the quiz, and you must select them both to get a correct score. One correct answer is the single line comment that begins with // (as you show). The other one is a multi-line comment that uses the /* and */ tokens, but on separate lines.

Thanks Steven Parker
