Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Why doesn't this code work?

continents = [ 'Asia', 'South America', 'North America', 'Africa', 'Europe', 'Antarctica', 'Australia', ]

Your code here

for continent in continents: if continent[0] == "A": print("* " + continents)

I keep getting TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation. I am trying to print out the continents that start with letter A only

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == "A":
        print("* " + continents)

Hi Kalvin,

in your code there is actually only one tiny letter too much... ;-)

In the last line where you print out the continents you only want to print one continent for each loop (if it starts with "A" of course) but not print the whole list (as you declared) each time the condition is true.

Makes sense and do you find the solution with this hint?

Happy coding!

Nils
