Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Can someone help me to figure out where there is a problem? and guide me to fix it.

Access string by index.

continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
for continent in continents[A,]:
   print("* "+  continent)

i think your over thinking this. Your just making a bullet list so printing on each iteration of the loop with the + to concatenate works. so this is all you really need

for item in continents:
    if item.startswith(“A”):
        print("* "+item)

Then you probably want to throw an if statement in for the second part of the challenge that uses the startswith() that way the code only prints if item starts with A

Thank you!!

u have a syntax error
