Java Java Objects (Retired) Harnessing the Power of Objects Methods and Constants

What's wrong with this code?

Why can't it pass?

GoKart.java
public class GoKart {
  public static final int FIELD = 8;
  private String mColor;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;

  }

  public int charge() {
    mBarsCount = FIELD;

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;
  } 
}

There's a syntax error in your charge function.

public int charge() {
    mBarsCount = FIELD;

Should be:

public int charge() {
    mBarsCount = FIELD;
}
