Hi Harsh Jain

You're on the right track and doing great. There are just a couple of small things out of place here.

First, after the return statement in the getColor method, the semicolon and the closing brace are mixed up. The semicolon needs to end the statement and then the brace closes the method. This is much easier to remember if you always put the closing brace on its own line.
Second, the name for the method you are adding should not be capitalized. Java methods are named using lowerCase camelCase naming conventions.

So, you got it right for the most part, just a couple small corrections and you're good to go. Have a look at the code below and compare to yours to better illustrate what I mean above.

  public String getColor() {
    return color;
  }

  public void charge(){
    barCount = MAX_BARS;
  }
}

Nice work! :) :dizzy:
