Indexing the first character of a list item to find items that start with "A".
I thought I would index the first character of each list item using list_item.index, but that doesn't appear to be working. Any thoughts on what I'm missing?
continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ] for continent in continents: if continent.index == 'A': print("* " + continent)

# Just remove the .index if continent.index == 'A': # Correct if continent == 'A': # You don't have to write index to get elements from an array or in this case # get the first letter of a string # The  there in itself refers to the index number
