Java Java Objects (Retired) Delivering the MVP Validation

i don´t know what is wrong with my code

import java.io.Console;
public class Prompter
{
  private Game mGame;
public Prompter(Game game){
mGame = game;  
}
  public void play()
  {
  while(mGame.getRemainingTries()> 0)
  {
  displayProgress();
  promptForGuess();
  }

  public boolean promptForGuess()
  {
  Console console = System.console();
    boolean isHit = false;
    boolean isValidGuess = false;

while (! isValidGuess) {
    String guessAsString = console.readLine("Enter a letter: ");
    char guess = guessAsString.charAt(0);
    try {
        isHit = mGameApplyGuess(guess);
        isValidGuess = true;
    } catch (IllegalArgumentException iae) {
        console.printf("%s.  Please try again.\n", iae.getMessage());
    }
}

    return isHit ;
  }

  public void displayProgress()
  {
  System.out.printf("You have a %d tries left to solve: %s\n",
                    mGame.getRemainingTries(),mGame.getCurrentProgress());
  }
}

You have to create mGameApplyGuess() method

import java.io.Console;

public class Prompter {

    private Game mGame;

    public Prompter(Game game) {
        mGame = game;
    }

    public void play() {
        while (mGame.getRemainingTries() > 0) {
            displayProgress();
            promptForGuess();
        }
    }

    public boolean promptForGuess() {
        Console console = System.console();
        boolean isHit = false;
        boolean isValidGuess = false;
        while (!isValidGuess) {
            String guessAsString = console.readLine("Enter a letter: ");
            char guess = guessAsString.charAt(0);
            try {
                isHit = mGameApplyGuess(guess);
                isValidGuess = true;
            } catch (IllegalArgumentException iae) {
                console.printf("%s. Please try again.\n", iae.getMessage());
            }
        }

        return isHit;
    }

       //here is
    private boolean mGameApplyGuess(char guess) {
        return false;
    }

    public void displayProgress() {
        System.out.printf("You have a %d tries left to solve: %s\n", mGame.getRemainingTries(), mGame.getCurrentProgress());
    }
}
