Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Hi guys. I can’t solve the 3 first tasks. “No such contact” and “No such property” are the only ones working. Thanks in advance.

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",
    lastName: "Holmes",
    number: "0487345643",
    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 && contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop) === true) {
    return contacts[i][prop];
  if (contacts[i]["firstName"] !== name){
    return "No such contact";
  } else {
      return "No such property";
  // Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

This return statement will immediately stop the entire function the very first time that the condition is true.

I solve it after reading the exercise calmly a couple of times. “If name does not correspond to ANY contacts then return the string No such contact .”

I changed the logic structure of the conditional statement to return the props and I placed outside the return “No such contact” from the FOR loop.
