Profile Lookup (my code is right but why not running)

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

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

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

Link to the challenge:

Your code will stop at the first iteration of the loop, as one of the return statements is executed, and when a return statement is executed the function ends

Also this is written wrong. hasOwnProperty() doesn’t have the parenthesis for the call where they should be
It should be


thanx for your kind suggestion @ilenia
