Unreachable code error

public class Game { public static final int MAX_MISSES=7;
private String answer; private String hits; private String misses;

public Game(String answer) { this.answer = answer; hits = ""; misses = ""; } public boolean applyGuess (char letter) { if(misses.indexOf(letter) !=-1 || hits.indexOf(letter)!=-1);{ throw new IllegalArgumentException(letter+"has already been guessed"); }

boolean isHit=answer.indexOf(letter) !=-1; if (isHit) { hits+=letter;
}else { misses += letter; } return isHit; } public int getRemainingTries() { return MAX_MISSES - misses.length(); }

public String getCurrentProgress() { String Progress=""; for(char letter : answer.toCharArray()) { char display='-'; if(hits.indexOf(letter)!=-1){ display=letter; } Progress += display; }return Progress;

}

I got the mistake it was the semicolon(;) I used after the IF statement for IllegalArgumentException sorry for wasting your time

Yes the semicolon
