    'North America',
    'Africa',

for continent in continents:
    for letter in continent[0]:

Hi George!

To pass multiple challenge tasks, always add code to the previous task, instead of coding it twice.

(In other words, don't have two versions of the for loop, just add code to the existing loop for the second challenge.)

Task 1:

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

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

Task 2:

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

for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == 'A': # ONLY if the first character of the current continent is 'A'
        print("* " + continent) # Will the continent name print

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Yes it does Thank you! Got it
