Hey Jack Grundy, the task is looking for a simple asterisk followed by a space then the string. So one output line may be of the form:

โ€œ* Asiaโ€

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Ok, I think I understand. The task is asking you to process the given list continents and print out a formatted string for each continent. The form of the answer would be:

for continent in continents:
    print( put_your_formatted_string_here )

Where your formatted string uses the single continent value from the for loop, and includes an asterisk and a space before the continent name.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

It seems simple but maybe i am running a fromat error. i run like this example:

["* Asia", "* Australia", "Antarctica"]

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