Having troubles with my loopy function exercise.

The task goes like this: Inside of the function, I need a for loop that prints each thing in items. But, if the current thing is the string "STOP", break the loop.

My proposal was:

def loopy(items):
    # *Code goes here*
for item in items:
    if item=="STOP":
        break
    print(item)

Thanks for your help!

Your code is close. There are some intention issues:

def loopy(items):
    # *Code goes here*
    for item in items:
        if item=="STOP":
            break
        print(item)
