Hey Kanha Kesarwani, for an example of how to loop and print items in a list, review the previous video near time 2:20.

If you issue is how to only print certain items from a list, then you'll need to filter the items. A good way to do this is using an if statement. if looping with a loop variable "continent", and continent is a string, then code below would be helpful

if continent.startswith("S"):
    # add action here

This is equivalent to:

if continent[0] == "S":
    # add action here

Post back if you need more hints. Good luck!!
