function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  // Only change code below this line
for (var i=0;i < contacts.length;i++){
  if (contacts[i]["first Name"] === name){
    return (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop))

Link to the challenge:

I think the problem is related to this code
if (contacts[i]["first Name"] === name)

I believe that it should be if (contacts[i]['firstName'] === name)

hello and welcome back to fcc forum :slight_smile:

  • you have two returns in your “if” block
  • if block should use “firstName”
  • in your “if” block see what you are returning…

lets read from instructions

If both are true, then return the “value” of that property

  • do you mean “if” instead of “return”

address those changes and it should be alright, happy learning :slight_smile:
