[R] Comments inside a line? Not possible?

In the guidelines I've read:

"Comment your code. Entire commented lines should begin with # and one space.
Short comments can be placed after code preceded by two spaces, #, and
then one space. "

Just wondering if there is no way to comment something out "in the
middle" of a line? Example:
Original code:

Desired commented code:
mystrings<-c("a", # want "b" to be commented out, but not "c" # "c")
So that it is read as: mystrings<-c("a","c")

Not possible?
