I'd like you to now only print continents that begin with the letter "A".

?

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    if continents[0]="A"
    print("* " + (continent))

Hey! Ben Olsen

I ran your code and removed the s in continents after the if keyword and used an equality operator(==) instead of an assignment operator(=) after continent[0]. I then added a colon after the string "A". The last thing was I indented the print function.

continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia'
]
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == "A":
        print("* " + (continent))

This was the result

* Asia                                                                                              
* Africa                                                                                            
* Antarctica                                                                                        
* Australia 

I'm not certain if this is the correct answer you are looking for. I am still new to Python but I hope it is :)
