This challenge is asking you to define a property constant for this class. You'll add this constant at the top of the class like private String text;

You will need an access control keyword to make it available to other classes. You'll find that information here: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/accesscontrol.html

The other major part deals with the static keyword in order to be able to use the constant w/out instantiating a new instance of the class. You'll find information on the static keyword here and a bit about Constants here: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/classvars.html
