Print a bulleted list of each continent from the continents list.

Output should look similar to:

  • Asia
  • South America

i was unable to loop and print out this two items . having done this:

for continent in continents: print("*"+continent).

how can i loop to each item and print them out

continents = [
    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here

for continent in continents:
  print("*"+ continent)

1 Answer

Your loop for task 1 is correct with one exception. There should be a space between the bullet and the continent name. You can either add the space with what you have:

for continent in continents:
  print("* " + continent)

Or change + to a comma with which print will join the two strings with a space in between:

for continent in continents:
  print("*", continent)
