Challenge Task Ambiguous

This question topic is so ambiguous, should I remove the first position when it's an 'a', then print the rest or should I not print any 'a' that I may find ?

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    first_a = False
    for item in items:
      if item == 'a':

The task is asking to not print any item that starts with an "a".
