Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Clarify instructions for Introducting Lists Python challenge "Continental"

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

I just wanted to point out that the instructions say Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task.

But if you do that (as I did above) you will get the "bummer" answer - I needed to remove the code that prints the bulleted list of all continents to pass the challenge. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing Nicole Buckenwolf. That instruction will be there for every multi task coding challenge, I'll bring this up with the team to see if we can change the wording for this challenge 🙂
