I don't understand this

I am not understading what it asking to do exactly?

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items

It wants the loop to stop when the item the loop is going though equals the string "STOP". Doing that will require that you place an if statement inside of your loop that checks if the content of the item variable equals "STOP", if it does you should use the break keyword, as that will result in the loop stopping immediately.

Do also note that the if statement has to come before the print statement in order to complete the challenge.
