I dont know if i am using the getter correct. my syntax errors are all over the place with minor edits

Okay so now let's add a required display name property. At this time, just use the proper case of the brand. eg: SONY should have a display name of Sony.

Create a constructor that takes the display name. And add a public getter that returns the display name. Give it the name getDisplayName.

package com.example.model;

public enum Brand {
  // Your code here
  private Brand displayName;

    Brand(String name) {
        displayName = SONY;

    public Brand getDisplayName() {
        return displayName;

Your enums should have parentheses after them with a string inside because:

Brand(String name)

The above means you need to do something like JVC("jvc"), SONY("sony") . . .etc
