I am stuck

I think I may have written the code wrong. It keeps telling me to try again.

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    for loopitems in items
        if loopitems[0] == "a":
            continue
        else
            print(loopitems)

loopy(["abc","xyz","yio","pol"]) 
    # Code goes here

Your code is pretty much correct, you have just forgotten to place a colon after the for loop declaration and the else statement.

Like this:

def loopy(items):
    for loopitems in items: # <- You were missing a colon here
        if loopitems[0] == "a":
            continue
        else: # <- You were missing a colon here
            print(loopitems)
