Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Anyone know why this isn't right? I've ran it in Sublime Text and it works there.

Really stuck on why this doesn't get checked as correct since it works when i run the code. Would appreciate any help :)

continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == "A":

HI Kevin,

The instructions from Task #1 explicitly state: "Print a bulleted list of each continent from the continents list.", but you're just printing the list... I'm assuming it had to have been there for you to pass the first task. Once you have the * spaced before each continent, your code does pass the Challenge.

Keep up the great Coding! :) :dizzy:

Ohhhhh, don't know how i missed that. Appreciate the quick help!
