Challenge: Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

You define the function twice. Why??
Remove the bottom one. Delete the extra closing curly bracket at the bottom. Then you should pass the tests.

i did that but couldn’t pass the test.

What does your code look like now?


You gotta delete that extra } on line 42.

thank you. it went. :man_dancing: :man_dancing: :man_dancing: :man_dancing: :man_dancing: :man_dancing: :man_dancing:
