Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Index with Specific Parameters

I have looked up several different functions on how to sort for "A" and call this properly but I'm falling short. We need to index for "A" then set a function to deliver this. I'm missing something easy

continents = [
    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here

for con in continents:
    print("* " + con)

1 Answer

Just do this:

for con in continents:
    if con[0] == "A":
        print("* " + con)

Thank you!! I appreciate the help a ton.
