How do i add to this list?

I believe that my code is the same as it was in the workspace before this. I've been stuck on this for a few days

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

You're close, but "continents" (plural) is the whole list; and what you want to print each time through the loop is just a single "continent".

Also, you need to separate the asterisk from the name, so your string literal should contain an asterisk and a space.
