Stuck @ Basic JavaScript: Testing Objects for Properties

Can anyone tell me where i went wrong? Stuck!
Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

var myObj = {
gift: "pony",
pet: "kitten",
bed: "sleigh",
city: "Seattle"

function checkObj(obj,checkProp) {
// Your Code Here
if (myObj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp)) {
return myObj[checkProp];
return "Not Found";


// Test your code by modifying these values

console.log(checkObj({gift: "pony", pet: "kitten", bed: "sleigh"}, "gift"));

Challenge: Testing Objects for Properties

Link to the challenge:


In the function you have “obj” as a parameter. So you have to use it and not myObj!


Thankyou so much buddy, It’s working now! @moriel :slightly_smiling_face:
