Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Tell us what’s happening:
please help me to find the mistake. I have checked the solution and it is the exact copy of the solution but still it fails the first three run tests.

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) {
    if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop) === true
    ) {
      return contacts[i][prop];
    else {
        return "No such property";
  return "No such contact";
  // Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

You can add these line to before your return statement. It helps to see where your if-else logic goes.


console.log(“No such property”)

console.log(“no such contact”)

And i when i tried the first case, it told me No such contact.

Seems like your for-loop didnt go thru all objects in your contacts. i.e. Once the first object name NOT matched, the rest are skipped.
