Hey Luke Shephard Zikuyumo, your code looks OK for Task 1. For Task 2, you are asked to print only the continents that begin with a. You'll need a conditional statement that allows the print statement to execute, only if the first letter is an "A". An if statement works well here. Hint: You can access the first continent letter using continent[0]

Currently, the second print statement in the code is causing an error. print(A) can be removed.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!
