What do we do to print other items and exclude others from the list?

I'm stuck with the question whereby I have to print other items and leave others from the list.

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

You can use an if statement.

As you are looking for items that begin with an "A" - you can select the first charecter in the word and compare it to "A".

if continent[0] == "A":

Remember python starts counting at 0, so the first charecter in the string is at [0]

If this comparision comes back as True it will execute the next indented code.
