I need some help in this task

I have no clue about solving this problem. But I know how to do it mentally but writing the correct logic for this question is tough for me.

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for a in items:
        if a.index(0)=="a":
            print a

Couple issues here.

  1. list.index() this method doesn't quite work like that; for example, list.index(value) will return the index position of the value on the list; thus, you need to write the comparison as a[0]=='a' instead.
  2. print a was the Python 2 way of outputting value; in Python 3, print is a function print().

hope that helps.
