Objects Java

I didn't really understand what to do in this exercise. Could you please help me?

Print out using System.out.printf the color of the new object, using the getColor method.

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String mColor = "red";
         GoKart gokart = new GoKart(mColor);
      public String getColor() {
          return mColor;
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");

First of all, you need to get the colour of the goKart object, and place that in a variable. A getter methid has been made up already, so make sure to use that.

Then, use system.out.printf("Colour is %s ", theColour);

To print out the colour. %s tells the compiler, print out the corresponding value in a variable that is noted after the quotes.
