It's not the loop, but the print statement.

Normally, a print will go to the next line each time you use it. But when you provide the option "end=''", you're telling it you don't want anything done after the text is put out. This makes sure that each item will appear directly after the previous one and on the same line.

After the loop, there's a print with an empty string and no end option that goes to the next line.

I was able to answer because I'd just seen another question on the same topic. But normally it's a good idea to provide a link to the course page you are working on along with your question.
