This challenge asks student to print an informative message if there are any records in gapminder for the year 2002. Two solutions are provided, one using any(gapminder$year == 2002) (note any() isn't introduced until later in that episode) and one much more complicated one involving counting the number of rows for the year 2002. It seems to me the only reasonable way to do this is with %in%, which is much simpler and uses a function that was introduced in the previous episode. I propose the solution should be:

if (2002 %in% gapminder$year) {
  print("Record(s) for the year 2002 found.")

I could see an argument for keeping the approach using any() as an alternative.
