Pls help to solve this I can't able to fix this even though I wrote the code to cast the objects and checking h the equality

import java.util.Date;

public class BlogPost implements Comparable {
  private String mAuthor;
  private String mTitle;
  private String mBody;
  private String mCategory;
  private Date mCreationDate;

  public BlogPost(String author, String title, String body, String category, Date creationDate) {
    mAuthor = author;
    mTitle = title;
    mBody = body;
    mCategory = category;
    mCreationDate = creationDate;

  public String[] getWords() {
    return mBody.split("\\s+");

  public String getAuthor() {
    return mAuthor;

  public String getTitle() {
    return mTitle;

  public String getBody() {
    return mBody;

  public String getCategory() {
    return mCategory;

  public Date getCreationDate() {

  public int compareTo(Object obj){

      BlogPost ob = (BlogPost) obj;
      return 0;
   return 1;

It's saying that task 1 is no longer passing because your method is returning 0 even when the objects are not equal. I can tell you how to fix this but you've asked for the answer to not be posted.
