Where is my mistake? Should I be using the 1st task's code or using a 4th line of code? Am I printing incorrectly?

Tried using singular and plural "continent" wording. Tried using 4th line of code. Def think I'm printing incorrectly. But what's my mistake?

continents.py
continents = ['Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia']
for continent in continents:
    print("* " + (continent[0, 3, 5, 6]))

You can't index more than one item at a time.

For the final task, you can add an "if" statement between the loop and the "print" to control which items get printed.
