Profile Lookup solution not working

I am not able to debug why this code won’t work. Can someone please help?

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 (name === contacts[i].firstName) {
      if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[i][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");

What is the intended goal?

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate 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.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.


Your for loop only makes one iteration before returning some value. Why? Because when a return statement is executed, the function exits immediately and does not come back to complete a loop.

You need to think about when you would know for sure, there is “No such contact”.
