avatar Intro Bite 02. Infinite loop, input, continue and break

In this Bite we'll get you to take user input using the input builtin and see if it matches items within a list.

In the while loop ask the user to enter a color and capture that input.

Check to see whether they've entered 'quit'. If so, print bye and exit (break) the loop, effectively ending the function.

If not, check to see whether the color (input) is in the VALID_COLORS color list. If it is, then print the color in lower case. If not, print Not a valid color and continue the loop. Then conclude by printing bye.

For this exercise the tests check standard output (what you print) so it's important to not print anything else (e.g. a string asking the user to enter a color), nor invoke the print_colors() function at the bottom of your code. It will fail the tests.

As you want to ask the user over and over again till they quit, you can use an infinite while loop. We already provided that in the template code, just code inside that loop.
