Output of Python programs | Set 9 (Dictionary)

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2021

Prerequisite: Dictionary 
1) What is the output of the following program? 
 

Python




dictionary = {'GFG' : 'geeksforgeeks.org',
              'google' : 'google.com',
              'facebook' : 'facebook.com'
              }
del dictionary['google'];
for key, values in dictionary.items():
    print(key)
dictionary.clear();
for key, values in dictionary.items():
    print(key)
del dictionary;
for key, values in dictionary.items():
    print(key)

a) Both b and d 
b) Runtime error 
c) GFG 
facebook 
d) facebook 
GFG
Ans. (a) 
Output:

facebook
GFG

Explanation: The statement: del dictionary; removes the entire dictionary, so iterating over a deleted dictionary throws a runtime error as follows: 
 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "cbeac2f0e35485f19ae7c07f6b416e84.py", line 12, in 
    for key, values in dictionary.items():
NameError: name 'dictionary' is not defined

2) What is the output of the following program? 
 

Python




dictionary1 = {'Google' : 1,
               'Facebook' : 2,
               'Microsoft' : 3
               }
dictionary2 = {'GFG' : 1,
               'Microsoft' : 2,
               'Youtube' : 3
               }
dictionary1.update(dictionary2);
for key, values in dictionary1.items():
    print(key, values)

a) Compilation error 
b) Runtime error 
c) (‘Google’, 1) 
(‘Facebook’, 2) 
(‘Youtube’, 3) 
(‘Microsoft’, 2) 
(‘GFG’, 1) 
d) None of these
Ans. (c) 
Explanation: dictionary1.update(dictionary2) is used to update the entries of dictionary1 with entries of dictionary2. If there are same keys in two dictionaries, then the value in second dictionary is used. 



3) What is the output of the following program? 
 

Python




dictionary1 = {'GFG' : 1,
               'Google' : 2,
               'GFG' : 3
               }
print(dictionary1['GFG']);

a) Compilation error due to duplicate keys 
b) Runtime time error due to duplicate keys 
c) 3 
d) 1
Ans. (c) 
Explanation: Here, GFG is the duplicate key. Duplicate keys are not allowed in python. If there are same keys in a dictionary, then the value assigned mostly recently is assigned to the that key.
4) What is the output of the following program? 
 

Python




temp = dict()
temp['key1'] = {'key1' : 44, 'key2' : 566}
temp['key2'] = [1, 2, 3, 4]
for (key, values) in temp.items():
    print(values, end = "")

a) Compilation error 
b) {‘key1’: 44, ‘key2’: 566}[1, 2, 3, 4] 
c) Runtime error 
d) None of the above
Ans. (b) 
Explanation: A dictionary can hold any value such as an integer, string, list or even another dictionary holding key value pairs. 
Note: This code can be executed only in python versions above 3 

5) What is the output of the following program? 
 

Python




temp = {'GFG' : 1,
        'Facebook' : 2,
        'Google' : 3
        }
for (key, values) in temp.items():
    print(key, values, end = " ")

a) Google 3 GFG 1 Facebook 2 
b) Facebook 2 GFG 1 Google 3 
c) Facebook 2 Google 3 GFG 1 
d) Any of the above
Ans. (d) 
Explanation: Dictionaries are unordered. So any key value pairs can be added at any location within a dictionary. Any of the output may come. 
Note: This code can be executed only in python versions above 3.
