I keep getting a SyntexError on this line: if continents[0] == "A"

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here and getting a bit stuck atm. Who can help me?
continents = [
    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    if continents([0]) == "A"
    print("* " + continent)

You nearly there, you have just forgotten the colon (:) after your if statement and you don't need those extra brackets when getting the first item from the list. it should look similar to this:

if continents[0] == "A":
    print("* " + continent)
