I need help with Using Objects for Lookups

// Setup
function phoneticLookup(val) {
var result = “Charlie”;

// Only change code below this line
var lookup = {
“alpha”: “Adams”,
“bravo”: “Boston”,
“charlie”: “Chicago”,
“delta”: “Denver”,
“echo”: “Easy”,
“foxtrot”: “Frank”


// Only change code above this line
return result;

// Change this value to test

The quotes matters, see the difference


And also,
you should use bracket notation to access the argument variable var[arg] and assign it to the result variable

What you are trying to do is to give your function a variable and let it look for it (as a key in the lookup object), your function should then return the result which is the value that matches the key. (object = {key: value}).
Hope this helps a little, also make sure you’re using quotes (") not backticks.
good luck,
