<PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING TEMPLATE TO HELP YOU CREATE A GREAT POST!>

I get a ‘pass’ but my output includes all items from the object, not just the name, and this is if my search is equal to a first name or not.
<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>

@ajaxwhiz07943,

In some sections of this course, the course-checker Display’s data
this you could then identify by placing two EXTRA code-line’s:
console.log( “== My End ==” );
console.log( “== All that is displayed now, is the course-checker ==” );

In your search function
remove the ELSE statement and its code-block
