Hey, you don't have your 'if' statement nested properly... it needs to be indented to the same as the 'print()' statement right above it.

Hey Shjoneman Tan! You are just missing indentation here. In your code, the if is outside the for loop, also, you need to insert the if statement before printing item. Try something like this:

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