skipping an item in a list at an index using a loop

would want to skip an item in a list at index [0] using a loop or else print the current item

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items[0]:
        continue
    else:
        print(items)

You're using your for loop as a condition. I'll give you two hints. One your for loop only runs once as 'items[0]' is a single element. You would want to loop through the entire items list. The second is that to implement a conditional statement, you must separate out your loop from the condition! Also make sure you're printing the right thing!

You should end up with something like this:

def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
       if #add your condition here:
          continue
       else:
          print(item)
