Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Am I altering the question somehow?

My output looks to be what the course is asking for. I'm not sure where I'm off here. Thanks for your help!

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here
for continents in continents:
    print( "* " + continents)

Hi Talon!

This is an easy one. Your code is right-on except for one small thing.

Think of the for loop as being this:

for singular in plural:

Or

for element in list:

Or

for studentName in rosterOfStudentNames:

You are looping to access each value (continent) in the continents list.

So you should have this:

continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    print( "* " + continent) # each individual continent name

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
