Python | Reversed Order keys in dictionary
• Last Updated : 26 Jul, 2019

While working with dictionary, we can sometimes, have a problem in which we require to print dictionaries in the reversed order of their occurrence. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using `reversed() + sorted() + keys()` + loop
The combination of above functions can be used to perform this particular task. The `sorted` function is used to sort the keys and `reversed` gets the keys extracted using `keys()`, in descending order, which are printed using a loop.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Reversed Order keys in dictionary``# Using sorted() + keys() + reversed() + loop`` ` `# initializing dictionary``test_dict ``=` `{``1` `: ``"Gfg"``, ``5` `: ``"is"``, ``4` `: ``"the"``, ``2` `: ``"best"``}`` ` `# printing original dictionary``print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict))`` ` `# Using sorted() + keys() + reversed() + loop``# Reversed Order keys in dictionary``res ``=` `[]``for` `ele ``in` `reversed``(``sorted``(test_dict.keys())):``    ``res.append(ele)`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The reversed order of dictionary keys : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original dictionary is : {1: 'Gfg', 2: 'best', 4: 'the', 5: 'is'}
The reversed order of dictionary keys : [5, 4, 2, 1]
```

Method #2 : Using `list() + keys() + sorted() + reversed()`
It is another method in which this task can be solved. This is just a small variation of the above method, in this the list function is used to convert the result to list rather than using the loop to print the variables.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Reversed Order keys in dictionary``# Using sorted() + keys() + reversed() + list()`` ` `# initializing dictionary``test_dict ``=` `{``1` `: ``"Gfg"``, ``5` `: ``"is"``, ``4` `: ``"the"``, ``2` `: ``"best"``}`` ` `# printing original dictionary``print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict))`` ` `# Using sorted() + keys() + reversed() + list()``# Reversed Order keys in dictionary``res ``=` `list``(``reversed``(``sorted``(test_dict.keys())))`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The reversed order of dictionary keys : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original dictionary is : {1: 'Gfg', 2: 'best', 4: 'the', 5: 'is'}
The reversed order of dictionary keys : [5, 4, 2, 1]
```
