Whats the purpose of the final line in the function: blank print()

Hi everyone, just wondering what exactly is the purpose of the final line within the function - the blank print? It comes right after the for in loop

Thanks

A "print()" with no arguments will just cause the output to go to the next line.

Hi Steven, thanks for the help. But why would we write that line then?

That way, all the lines showing items in the list are together, but there will be a blank line after them to separate them from whatever gets printed next.
