Java Java Objects (Retired) Meet Objects Privacy and Methods


Here is the task : Add a public method, or getter, that can be used to get the color of the go kart.

1 Answer

Hi there,

This is a getter method, which returns the member variable:

public class GoKart {
  public String mColor = "red";

  public String getColor(){
    return mColor;

So the method returns a string and takes no parameters. Inside, it just returns the member variable mColor.

I hope that helps,
