function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  
  // Only change code below this line
function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {

    if (contacts[i].firstName === name) {
      if (prop in contacts[i]) {
        return contacts[i][prop];

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

You copy/pasted the solution function inside the function that is in the starting code. So now you have a function inside a function.

The only thing that happens when lookUpProfile runs is it sets up the inner function definition. None of the code inside the inner function actually runs because it is never invoked.

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  
  // Only change code below this line
function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
// rest of code

 }
}

There should only be one lookUpProfile function definition.
