    Default whats wrong?

    The code below shows some of the text for a class called City. As you can see, a City has two instance variables, name and population. Write a complete public constructor (including header line) with no parameters, which sets the population to an initial value of -1, and the name to an initial value of "unknown".

    public class City {
      private String name;
      private int population;
      public City(String CityName){
    name = cityName;
    population =-1;

    says compilation error but im lost..

    Default Re: whats wrong?

    Is there a problem for writing the no parameter constructor, or for the compilation error? for the compilation error: java is case sensitive.
