This QandA has an incorrect answer marked as correct - it is confusing

The answer from Shrey below that is marked as "correct", is incorrect. Shrey has incorrectly written that ceci is the first idea in the sentence - which would be the former. To avoid confusion as people read through here the 'correct' banner should be removed from that comment. Unfortunately Shrey has misconstrued an earlier answer from Cécile, which related to a 'this and that' construct, and did not refer to 'former and latter' situations - although in a follow up response Cécile noted that, as per the lesson, ceci is 'latter' and cela is 'former'. Despite this, an answer that says the opposite is still labelled as being correct.
