I pass the first task of the challenge but the what do I have to do o pass the second?

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
   for i in items:
        print(items)
        if  items == "STOP" :
            break

























        # Code goes here

So first we want to make sure we're using the individual item not the entire list. And second you need to place your if statement in the correct place. You want it to break before printing the STOP item

def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
        if item == 'STOP':
            break
        print(item)
