Hi Victor A Hernandez! The second task is asking 'I'd like you to now only print continents that begin with the letter "A".'

Just like a list, you can also access specific letters in a string with the [0] notation.

For example:

>>> my_string = 'string'
>>> my_string[0]
>>> my_string[3]

So in your code, you need to check to see if the continent's first letter equals 'A' and then print it out if it does.

Hope this helps :)

Thank you, I'll do it.
