When compiling kernel in text mode I have a questions with options: [Y/n/?]?

(Debian) So when I just hit enter it will answer the question with default option in this case "Y"? Or do I have to actually type it in. Thank you.

The default answer is the uppercase letter. Hitting enter will choose the default.
