How do I stop at STOP?

Am I going about this wrong?

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
        print(item)
    if items == "STOP":
        break
    else: continue

You're on the right track with this but you just made two simple errors.

First, when you enter the for loop you should check if the string is "STOP" first, and if it is, then break. Else if it isnt "STOP" then you would print out the string.

Second, when you're checking the string it should be if item == "STOP", you were checking items., and also dont forget to make the string uppercase when checking for "STOP"

So the completed code would be as follows :

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