If by first two arguments you referring to:

Output should look similar to:

  • Asia
  • South America

the first task wants you to print all continents. You are close but by including a space and comma in your print function you will end up with two spaces between the bullet and the continent name.


for cont in continents:
    print("* ",cont)

should be:

for cont in continents:
    print("*", cont)

Using the comma will add the needed single space

Thank you, for quick response that worked!
