Cannot pass the problem with enums.

Hello.

For some reason the exercise task 2 doesn't pass. It says that it expected to get the display name of JVC, but it didn't. What am I missing here?

package com.example.model;

public enum Brand {
    JVC("Jvc"), SONY("Sony"), COBY("Coby"), APPLE("Apple");
    private String mDisplayName;

    Brand(String brand) {
        mDisplayName = brand;
    }

    public String getDisplayName() {
        return mDisplayName;
    }
}

Could it be that "Jvc" should be "JVC" (all upper case)?

When doing it like this " Jvc("JVC"), Sony("SONY"), Coby("COBY"), Apple("APPLE"); " I get an error, Expected enum to contain value 'JVC' but it did not. Please add it.

I had to pass it like this to get it working:

JVC("JVC"), SONY("Sony"), COBY("Coby"), APPLE("Apple");

Exactly what you had the first time, except for putting "JVC" in all capital letters.

String passed "Jvc" should be all upper cased. try passing "JVC" instead.
