Profile lookup Test

hi, can someone tell me the problem with my code, i am unable to pass the test. see cose below:

function lookUpProfile(firstName, prop) {

    for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {

    if(firstName === contacts[i].firstName && contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop))  {



    }   if (firstName !== contacts[i][firstName]) {

        return "No such contact";

    } if ( firstName === contacts[i].firstName && contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)=== false) {

        return "No such property";



        return contacts;




can you please provide the challenge link?

like this it’s like you do not have a loop as one of the return statements will execute on first iteration of the loop no matter what - you are checking only first index of the array

In addition, this line does nothing:


I think you rather want to return contacts[i][prop] at that point.

I have edited your post to include the challenge link.

When you make a post to the forum, make sure to include all of the important information so we can assist you better.

Thank you for helping out.

The link has been added. Thanks.
