How to call specific items out of a list
Hey guys, i'm trying to figure out how to call specific items out a list. Its asking for all of the continents that start with the letter "A".
continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ] for continent in continents: if "A" in continent: print("* " + continent)
you are search the whole string for char 'A', instead just search string first char
for continent in continents: if 'A' in continent: print("* " + continent)
