Task 2 of that challenge wants you to declare a public String variable named mTitle. The m is used as the naming convention to signify it as a member variable. In Java we can declare variables with a few things in mind:

  1. Zero or more modifiers, such as public or private.
  2. The field's type.
  3. The field's name.

So, for this challenge, inside our pictureBook class, we would declare our variable with:

public String mTitle;

Post back if you are still stuck.

Happy coding,
