my code outputs all continents that start with 'A'

my code outputs all continents that start with 'A' including Asia, but the system tells me that I am wrong

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here

    if continent[0] == 'A':
        print(continent)

Hey Cory Rhodes, your code is close. The challenge is looking for a bulleted list using asterisks *:

“* Asia”, etc instead of just the continent names.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
