Break

Here's the question:

Oops, I forgot that I need to break out of the loop when the current item is the string "STOP". Help me add that code!

What am I doing wrong?

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

Hi Enzie,

You need to place the if statement before the print(item). Here is the code I used to pass this challenge below:

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if item == "STOP":
            break
        print(item)

Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!
