i don t understand why this is wrong. Also in my function loopy, my variable (items) is in fact a list. Is that correct?

Also can my variable (items) be in fact a list?

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

You need to work with the Item in the Items array.. The goal of looping through an array is to get access to each Element of the array.. So your code should look like this:

def loopy(items):
  for item in items:
      if item[0] == "a": #item not items
        continue
      print (item) #item not items
