# how to iterate using for loop

What is another way to do the iteration using for loop?

continents.py
```continents = [
'Asia',
'South America',
'North America',
'Africa',
'Europe',
'Antarctica',
'Australia',
]
for continent in continents:
i=0
while i<2:
print("*"+continent[i])
```

Hi Kushagra Shukla! I really like seeing other people's different coding solutions. (Yours is a neat one.) I look forward to seeing any other ways people post here! But, here's the unimaginative ;) way I did it:

```for continent in continents:
print("* " + continent)
```

nakalkucing That will print the entire list. What if i have to print only the first two elements of the list?

Hmmm... I see. Sorry about that. Kicking myself for not paying enough attention. ;)

I'm now experimenting with the code to find a way to print off the first 2 elements of the list. :)

Ok. After consulting a friend, we came up with this:

```i=0
for continent in continents:
if i < 2:
print("* " + continent)
i += 1
```

Just being silly here, Kushagra Shukla. But, if you need the first two elements printed out in place of every other element of the list...

```continents = [
'Asia',
'South America',
'North America',
'Africa',
'Europe',
'Antarctica',
'Australia',
]
for cont in continents:
print ("* " + str(continents[0 : 2]))
```

Happy Coding! :)
