Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

I am unsure of how to get just continents beginning with 'A' using my code.

What is needed to make this workable code?

continents = [
    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here
print("Continents: ")
for continent in continents:
        print("* " + continent[0])

1 Answer

You are currently using continent[0] to print the first character of each continent. If on the other hand you used continent[0] in an if statement you could compare it to "A" and if they match print the bulleted continent name.

Thank you, that did the trick
