Link to the challenge:

it says first name not defined

if (contacts[i].firstName == firstName){
The second ‘firstName’ is not the parameter of the function ( it should be name in your case).

thank you thank you thankyou

  1. there is no mention of firstName variable in your code.
  2. You are comparing a property (firstName) of object (contacts) with undefined variable.

so, it says firstName is not defined.
