I don't know how to set the condition in the loop to say if the first letter in the continent is "A" then print.
I've tried a while loop and using print(continent[0,3,5,6]) but I get an error and I don't understand why.
continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ] # Your code here print("continents:") for continent in continents: print("* " + continent) print(continents)

for continent in continents: loop, the variable
continent is assigned, in turn, to each text string of a continent's name. Each character in a string can be reference in the same manner as
list indexing. So the first character of
continent would be
continent. To compare to "A", use
continent == "A"
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!
