Potential error in a Takeaways pdf

I found a potential error in Takeaways in the 2nd Python course: “Python for Data Science: Intermediate”, 2nd mission: Python Data Analysis Basics, in the Takeaways, under: Syntax; String Formatting And Format Specifications; Format specification for comma separator:

It reads:

india_pop = The approximate population of {} is {}".format(“India”,1324000000)

I think there is a " missing at the beginning of the string and :, missing within the second {} bracket.

If I’m mistaken, please let me know.
