Hiya Prem! You cant use "while" in this challenge coz you've to iterate over the argument "items" which is an array of strings. Besides your "while" loop is an endless loop, which doesnt make sense in context of this challenge. So yeah just use "for" loop instead of "while" loop, here is my code for reference:

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