Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I wrote this ans, but I am unable to clear the test, I don’t know what wet wrong

  **Your code so far**
// Setup
const contacts = [
  firstName: "Akira",
  lastName: "Laine",
  number: "0543236543",
  likes: ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"],
  firstName: "Harry",
  lastName: "Potter",
  number: "0994372684",
  likes: ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"],
  firstName: "Sherlock",

  likes: ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"],
  firstName: "Kristian",
  lastName: "Vos",
  number: "unknown",
  likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
// Only change code below this line
for (let i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
  if (contacts[i]["firstName"]=== name) {
    return contacts[i][prop]
      return "No such property"
    return "No such contact"
// Only change code above this line
lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

You should be working on your debugging skills. There is no such thing as a good programmer that isn’t a good debugger.

The first thing would be to put in the first test and see what happens. Put this at the bottom:

console.log(lookUpProfile("Kristian", "lastName"));

What is that returning? The first 3 tests are failing - what are they returning? It turns out they are all returning the same thing. It turns out that it is for the same reason.

Put some _console.log_s in the code and track what is happening.

I would remind you that return exits the function it is in. Trace through the logic in your for loop.
