I don't know what to return

Task 2 requests me to return something. I am unsure what to return because I wasn't given a body or array.

public class PictureBook{

  public String mTitle() {
                         return PictureBook;}}

I ended with attempting to return everything in my code....PictureBook and mTitle. Could someone clarify what I am supposed to return?

Task 2 asks you to declare a member variable of type String called mTitle. There's nothing to return.

Your code should look like:

public class PictureBook {
   public String mTitle;

I hope that helps.

hey steve im having a tough time learning java what should i do.

Hi Emmett,

It's best to just keep pugging away at the courses on here and ask lots of questions in the forum. There's always loads of help in here.


Thank you Steve. I had the parenthesis in there the whole time.

No probs ...
