Can't skip the item

I think I followed all the instructions, what is wrong? Is it in my 'if' condition? The comparator is wrong?

Thanks,

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        print(item)

        if item[0] == 'a':
            continue

1 Answer

First check if first letter is 'a' then continue else print the word

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if item[0] == 'a':
            continue
        else:
            print(item)

Also.... the following is wrong too...

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if item[0] == 'a':
            continue
        print(item)

Thanks Krishna :) that worked!
