# QuickCheck / GADT

From HaskellWiki

I couldn't find an example on how to use QuickCheck with GADTs. One solution is to use existential types. The example here is a solution to one of the exercises in Fun with Phantom Types. Note that here everything is heterogeneous and you may have defined your GADT to impose some constraints. In that case you will have to determine at which level you use existential types. For example, you could use them only at the top level.

## Solution to exercise
