Hey. Could you please assist? My code doesn’t pass and I don’t know what is wrong now

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 (name == contacts[i].firstName) {
      if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[i][prop]
      }else {
        return "No such property"
    }else {
      return "No such contact"

  // Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Hello hope you’re fine! Your code looks amazing but i think something matter obviously since it doesn’t pass :sweat_smile:
I’m not pretty sure but i think that the problem in your code lies in the location of your “return” statements. Currently they are placed inside the “for” loop, causing the function to exit prematurely before all contacts are checked.

Hope i was helpful! Happy coding! :+1:


As was mentioned you have an issue with your returns.

I would suggest adding this console statement after the function so you can see what it returns

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

That should give you a hint as to which return statement you need to fix

hope that helps


Hey sir, thank you for your response it took me a couple of hours to figure it out after seeing your code but at last I figured it out :+1:
