Factors in R programming are kind of data structures that stores categorical data i.e., levels and can have any type of data (integer, string, etc).
recode_factor() function in R Language is used to replace certain values in a factor. To use recode_factor() function, dplyr package is required.
recode_factor(x, …, .ordered = TRUE)
x: represents factor object of a vector
… :represents replacements
.ordered: creates an ordered factor if TRUE.
Before replacement:  a b c Levels: a b c After replacement:  x b c Levels: x b c
Before replacement:  a b c Levels: a b c After replacement:  x y c Levels: x y c
