Using continue in a while loop [solved]

Okay, so I’m interested to know why the following code doesn’t work (specifically the “continue” part. I understand the given solution (using lst = lst[1:], but I think the way on that the picture shows also makes sense…

Hi @py1026655807,

Your continue statement causes the following statement to be skipped during every iteration of the while loop, so i never gets incremented:

    i += 1

See 4.4. break and continue Statements, and else Clauses on Loops.
