I cant understand how I should do it

I'd like you to now only print continents that begin with the letter "A".

HINT: Remember that you can access characters in a string by index

continents = [
    'South America',
    'North America',
# Your code here
for continent in continents:
    print('* ' + continent)

1 Answer

for continent in continents:
    if continent[0].lower() == "a":
        print('* ' + continent)

By using continent[0] you're accessing the first letter of the element.
