What value do I return?

It says that there must be a return value in the code. Which I don't get because I don't know what there is to return. Please leave any ideas about this and explain how a public string works in android studio.

PictureBook.java
import java.util.Random;

public class PictureBook{


  public String field() {
      return mTitle;
  }

}

If this is confusing, you may want to start with the java track, which covers java basics like member variables.
