Please tell me where I'm wrong

Tell us what’s happening:
I have tried this code. Everything seems to be good. It is matching with the solution provided as well. However, the case where both the name and property are found seems to be not working.

   **Your code so far**

// Setup
var 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 (contacts[i].firstName === name){        
       if (prop in contacts[i]) {
            return contacts[i][prop];
          } else {                 
            return "No such property";
   return "No such contact";           
// Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Challenge: Profile Lookup

Link to the challenge:

This loop would only run once…
If (contacts[i].firstName === name) is true for i = 0, it returns the appropriate output; else it returns “No such contact” and exits the function…

If return "No such contact"; is shifted to after the loop is closed, you’ll get it to check all values of i:slight_smile:

Hope that helped!


Wow, thank you so much . It really helped. :star_struck:
