So, without wasting time, lets get started!

Dictionary in Python:

Python dictionary is an unordered collection of items. In Dictionary, Each key is separated from its value by a colon (:), the items are separated by commas, and the whole thing is enclosed in curly braces.

An empty dictionary without any items is written with just two curly braces, like this: {}. Keys are unique within a dictionary while values may not be. The values of a dictionary can be of any type, but the keys must be of an immutable data type such as strings, numbers, or tuples.

Let’s take a look how Dictionary is created and accessed in Python.
