It looks like you have three main issues:

  • your loop should iterate the items, not the function itself
  • indexing is done with brackets ("[]"), not the .lower() method
  • when an item qualifies, you should print just that item, not all items

Also, while it doesn't hurt anything, any code after a continue statement is ignored.
