Given a dictionary, the task is to find the key having the maximum value. 
Examples : 
 

Input : {'Audi':100, 'BMW':1292, 'Jaguar': 210000, 'Hyundai' : 88}
Output : Jaguar

Input:  {'Geeks':1900, 'for':1292, 'geek' : 88}
Output:  Geeks

 
Method #5: Using max() function
 

Python3




# Python code to find key with Maximum value in Dictionary
  
# Dictionary Initialization
Tv = {'BreakingBad':100, 'GameOfThrones':1292, 'TMKUC' : 88}
 
Keymax = max(zip(Tv.values(), Tv.keys()))[1]
print(Keymax)

Output: 

GameOfThrones

 

 
Method 2: Using max() with lambda function
 

Python3




# Python code to find key with Maximum value in Dictionary
  
# Dictionary Initialization
Tv = {'BreakingBad':100, 'GameOfThrones':1292, 'TMKUC' : 88}
 
Keymax = max(Tv, key= lambda x: Tv[x])
print(Keymax)

Output: 

GameOfThrones

 

  
Method 3: Using operator
 

Python3




# Python code to find key with
# Maximum value in Dictionary
import operator
 
# Dictionary Initialization
Car = {'Audi':100, 'BMW':1292, 'Jaguar': 210000, 'Hyundai' : 88}
 
# Getting max item
keyMax = max(Car.items(), key = operator.itemgetter(1))[0]
print(keyMax)

Output: 

Jaguar

 

  
Method 4: 
 

Python3




# Python code to find key with Maximum value in Dictionary
 
# Dictionary Initialization
Company = {'GFG':10000, 'Hashd':2292, 'Infy': 200}
 
# taking list of car values in v
v = list(Company.values())
 
# taking list of car keys in v
k = list(Company.keys())
 
print(k[v.index(max(v))])
