Tell us what’s happening:
Hello,

I keep getting an error, “firstName is not defined
firstName is not defined
firstName is not defined” and once I add quotations to firstName then I get another error.

I’m not sure exactly what I am doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

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

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Solved it - my first argument stated (name within the parameters instead of ‘firstName’).
