Hi there,

You want to create a new Set but, because a Set is abstract, you should use a HashSet. So, first import the Hashset at the top of the class. Then you want to assign a new HashSet of strings into mTags - remember, you're calling the constructor so you'll need some parentheses too.

Let me know how you get on.

Steve.

Good work! :+1: :+1: :+1:
