Tell us what’s happening:
can you tell me what I am doing wrong with my code?

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 x = 0; x < contacts.length; x++){
    if(contacts[x]["firstName"] === name)
    {
         
        if(contacts[x].hasOwnProperty(prop)){
         return contacts[x][prop];
       
        }
        else return "No such property";
    }
    else return "No such contact";
}

// Only change code above this line
}

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

Look over your first If statement. When I ran lookUpProfile("Kristian", "lastName");, the function did not loop. Why is that? Hope that the hint helps

Adding to @thisiswhale hint: The for loop only executes one iteration before returning something. Think about when your function should return “No such contact”.
