Hey Tyree┬┤,

i have found this:

  public List<String> getWordsPrefixedWith(String prefix) {
    List<String> results = new ArrayList<String>();
    for (String word : getWords()) {  
    }
      if (word.startsWith(prefix)) {
        results.add(word);
      } 
      return results; 
} 

and changed the position of a curly bracket to:

   public List<String> getWordsPrefixedWith(String prefix) {
    List<String> results = new ArrayList<String>();
    for (String word : getWords()) {  
      if (word.startsWith(prefix)) {
        results.add(word);
      } 
}
      return results; 
} 

I hove it helps!

Thanks
