continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    print(continent)

You have the right idea, but they are asking for a BULLETED list of the continents. Your code currently prints all of the continents right next to each other, so you just need to format your print statement. Remember: to move to the next line you can use \n within the print statement. I hope this helps.

Yes but the thing is I think it only wants me to output asia and south America by using the iteration won't it loop through every item in the list when it only wants to output the first 2 items?

They are asking for ALL of the items formatted in a BULLETED list (sorry I am not yelling just using caps to highlight important parts). The only reason you are seeing two in the example is because it is just that... an example of what the output should look like. The final output will be a bulleted list of all of the continents in the list 'continents'.
