Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

I don't know what to do with task 2.

I'm stuck

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

1 Answer

Within your for loop, check if the first letter of your continent variable is "A". If it is, then print out the continent as in first task. If it isn't, then don't print anything.

To get the first letter of a string, you could use continent[0]. Another way would be to use continent.startswith("A").

It worked, thank you.
