This is the Basic Solution in the guide. If you look below the solution on the guide website, you will see

Code Explanation:


The explanation is very good and even works through an example. Which part of the code explanation are you not understanding?

I keep rewinding my head over this part,can’t seem to get it at all.

function lookUpProfile(firstName, prop){
// Only change code below this line
  
  
 for (var x = 0; x < contacts.length; x++){
    if (contacts[x].firstName === firstName) {
        if (contacts[x].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
            return contacts[x][prop];
        } else {
            return "No such property";
        }
    }
}
  
return "No such contact";   
  

// Only change code above this line
}

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, remember to precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.
