    It's slang. I just took this quiz and checked my answers, so I know slang is correct. It is not colloquialism/stilted language, like soty2013 said, because colloquialism/stilted language is when you write in a way that uses unnecessary words and descriptions that make you seem pretentious. Such as a sentence that looks like this: "I turn my delighted gaze upon the denizens of the deep, whose scintillatingly silent realm is lit by an eerie illumination, all the way to its unplumbed depths." Stilted is like fancy, over-descriptive writing. P.S. I know this question is very old and probably doesn't matter to you anymore, but I am posting this answer for others who are still taking the class. When you google search the question this link pops up even though it's old.
