Challenge: Testing Objects for Properties

Link to the challenge:

Read the tests again: The function call includes an object.
In the first test the object has a “gift”-key and thus can return the value.
In the second test, the object DOESN’T have a “gift”-key.

You might be confused because your code is wrong. You are supposed to supply the object as first argument, not to create the object within the code.

Thanks for you response but the thing is all thes tests will be executed at the same time so how am i soupous to mate both condition at the same time if you can correct me than I would be more than happy thanks again buddy

You removed the obj argument here.

You must not create an object inside of the function.

By writing a function that works on the arguments, instead of creating an object.

In terms of basic addition, your function is basically:

function addNumbers(num){
  let number = 2;
  return number+num}

Now I want to know what 2+5 is and 3+1… how can I declare number to work both times? I can’t. That’s why I create a function add(num1, num2) that just takes two arguments.

function checkObj(obj, checkProp) {

  // Only change code below this line


    return obj[checkProp];


    return "Not Found";


  // Only change code above this line


still getting the same error

What is ‘the same error’? That code works fine for me.

I don’t know why but it was not working with the first attempt after starting a new session code worked as expected Thanks for help :>)
