The challenge isn't asking you to sort anything, just filter the list (as typically done with a WHERE clause).

You can make use of the way that inequality operators ( < and > ) work on words by comparing alphabetic order. For example, if you filtered a query using ... WHERE word < "D" the result set would only contain words that begin with "A", "B", and "C".
