    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    print("* " + continent)
    if continents[0] == "A":

Hi Jas0n! Here's the issue with your code:

for continent in continents:
    print("* " + continent)
    if continents[0] == "A":
    #the above line should be "continent", not "continents"
    #I believe that your current code is instructing Python to check if..
    #.. the first element in the list continents is equal to "A"
