continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']

Hi Luis,

You didn't specify which task you are stuck on. If you are concerned about the first task, your existing code passes.

If it's the second, where are you stuck? The challenge says, "Remember that you can access characters in a string by index". Is how to access characters in a string by index the problem? If so, it works just like accessing elements in a list, which was covered in the video Indexing.

If it's not how to index, is it how to compare one value to another? Try reviewing the If, Else, Elif video.

If you're still stuck after reviewing those videos, let me know and I'll give you some more specific tips.

Cheers

Alex
