I am kind of stuck. Do i del the contients i dont need?
This is my code so far:
continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ]
Your code here
for continent in continents: print("*" + continents)
continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ] # Your code here for continent in continents: print("*" + continents)

I finally solved the second part of the challenge which I assume you are referring to.
for continent in continents: if continent == 'A': print('* ' + continent)
That way, each loop it will check if the first character of the
continent is an A and then print it
In the line
print("*" + continents), the
continents variable refers to the list, and does not change over the course of the loop. Your
continent variable changes to a different string each pass through the loop, but you have not used its value. If you change
continent, then one continent will be printed each loop.
You will also need to add a single space after the asterisk and before the continent to pass the challenge.
