Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Need a little help figuring out why this isn't working :(

continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']

Your code here

print("Continents:") for continent in continents: print("* + ()".format(continents[0, 3, 5, 6]))

continents.py
continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
# Your code here
print("Continents:")
    for continent in continents:
        print("*  + ()".format(continents[0, 3, 5, 6]))

Hi Robert, the question requires you to iterate through the given list and print out continents which start with an "A". Therefore, trying to index etc .format(continents[0, 3, 5, 6])) does not work. Here is a sample code, hope it helps :).

continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == "A":
        print("* " + continent)
