Gripe with interactive lessons: Parsing Data with RegEx

Highlighted
5 - Atom

folks, what gives? in the interactive lessons part of Alteryx Academy, there is a module on Parsing Data with RegEx. first question of the test at the conclusion of this module is "Which changes can be applied to output columns from the RegEx tool when the Parse method is selected". Of the four choices, "Change Output Column Size", "Change Output Column Data Type", "Change Output Column Name", and "Change Output Column Order", i chose "Change Output Column Name" as the only change that can be applied using the Parse method.

For this, i received an Incorrect: "It is NOT possible to Change the Output Column Order in the RegEx tool's Parse configuration is selected"

does this mean that you can change Column Name, and Data Type, Column size can be changed?
