Describe your issue in detail here.
i get stuck on this step

  **Your code so far**
function checkObj(obj, checkProp) {
// Only change code below this line
if (obj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp)) {return "checkProp"}
return "Not Found";
// Only change code above this line

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Testing Objects for Properties

Link to the challenge:

return "checkProp"

This returns the literal string “checkProp”, which doesn’t fulfil the following requirement.

If the property is found, return that property’s value.

const me = {
  name: 'Colin'

checkObj(me, 'name');
// We expect the function call above to to return 'Colin' 
// since that's the value of the 'name' property on the `me` object.
// But your current implementation returns 'checkProp'
