var search = function(name) {
    for(var firstName in friends) {
        if(friends[name].firstName === name) {
            return friends[name];
        else {
            return("Sorry man! Haven't found a thing");


Please print the code I need to change and how, with a brief explanation.


the very last closing curly bracket:


it doesn't match to anything, remove it.

the variable you use in the for loop:

for(var firstName in friends)

will hold the objects (bill, steve, dan, harold and so on) which you go to search through, so firstName is what should be between the square brackets

A function ends the moment a return keyword is reached, in your case the first run of the loop
