Interface methods are always public

Look at the following code carefully and try to find the error:

package mypackage;
 interface MyInterface{
   void go();

 public class B implements MyInterface{
   void go(){
     System.out.println("running method go()");

   public static void main(String[] args) {
     B b = new B();

If you can't find, then remember, that all instance methods are implicitly public abstract. Hence if you implemet the method your implementation must have public access modifier because you can not assign weaker access privileges than in interface. Your go() method must be look like so:

   public void go(){
     System.out.println("running method go()");
