In my opinion the challenge says "accessable on class level", which means private or protected to me - not public?
The "check work" buttons says "public" is required. Maybe you can reformulate the challenge for better understanding?
If you want anything to be available to you without instantiation, you need to use the keyword: "static". This will allow you to access the variable without creating an object of the class.
