It feedback error, 'int' object is not subscriptable, may I know why part I have do wrong?

I have tried myself and find answer by others, they suggest me to do this but still not work. Anyone can let me know which part I have to change?

Task: I need you to help me finish my loopy function. Inside of the function, I need a for loop that prints each thing in items. Reminder: Check your syntax and indenting!

def loopy(items): # Code goes here for item in items: if item[0] == "a": continue else: print(item)

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if item[0] == "a":

Are you on task1 of this challenge? I think you may have accidentally gotten some code from a different challenge.

Hi there!

I am not sure what other suggestions you were looking at, but the task is much simple than you think.

Reading your question it seems that you are in part 1 of the task. The task simply asks you to make a for loop inside the loopy function. You do not need all of these parts from your code.

        if item[0] == "a":

Those are not wrong, but they have nothing to do with what the challenge is asking you to do.

Hope this helps.
