You are close and on the right path. Walking thru the loop as it currently stands, you print item and then ask if the item at location [0] is equal to 'a'. You need to check this validation before printing. I found it helpful to write down some answers and then walk them thru the code to see if they work. I am pretty sure this will work.

def loopy(items):
    for item in items:
        if item[0] == 'a':
            continue
        else:
            print(item)
