Cant seem to get the code to work

I cant seem to get this to function to work

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

Laknath, in the following code items is the name of a set of things, and item is the variable that each time through the loop will be an item in items. You need to check for "STOP" before you print. And you print each item, not items.

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