Challenge Task 2 of 2

I'd like you to now only print continents that begin with the letter "A". HINT: Remember that you can access characters in a string by index

The task is to only print the continents who starts with an 'A'. The code you write in the first task print everything so you need to test each continent with a condition. You need to use an If statement to make a logical comparison before you chose to print the continent that your for loop returned you.

for continent in continents: 
    # here we compare the first letter of the continent with the letter 'A'
    # We can access characters in a string by index and the first letter in continent is in the index number 0
    if continent[0] == 'A':
        # we print the continent if the previous statement was true
        print('*', continent)

thanks so much
