Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

//Setup
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(firstName, prop){
// Only change code below this line
for (var x = 0; x < contacts.length; x++){
    if (contacts[x].firstName === firstName) {
        if (contacts[x].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
            return contacts[x][prop];
        }   else {
            return "No such property";
        }
      
return "No such contact";
      
    }
 }
 
// Only change code above this line
}

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

See my comments below in your original code:

function lookUpProfile(firstName, prop){
  // Only change code below this line

  for (var x = 0; x < contacts.length; x++){
    if (contacts[x].firstName === firstName) {
      if (contacts[x].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return contacts[x][prop];
      }
      else {
        return "No such property";
      }
      return "No such contact";
      // the line above will never execute, because either the if block or the else block above will return a value
    }
 }
 /* if you want to return "No such contact", this would be the place to do it, because
    after you iterate through the contacts array and none of the other return statements 
    were executed, that means the contact does not exist. */

// Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Bob", "number");
