I’m stuck on the first execution of the if statement. Not sure the other ones correct but I know the first part isn’t. I’m struggling a little bit to figure out how you pick out the specific prop of the name that has been chosen in the parameter if you know what I mean like getting Akira’s ‘likes’.


//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(name, prop){
// Only change code below this line

    for (var i=0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
        for (var j=0; j < contacts[i].length; j++) {
            if (contacts[i][j].hasOwnProperty(name) && contacts[i][j].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
                ???
            } else if (contacts[i][j].hasOwnProperty(name) === false) {
                return "No such contact";
            } else {
                return "No such property";
            }
        }
    }
// Only change code above this line
}

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

The array is only one layer deep, why are you nesting loops?

Good question. I’m a little rusty as I haven’t been on the computer for the past days. Anyways that ended up getting some of the tasks ticked off though.
