Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Dictionary is a structure that maps keys to values. Each key can have only one value associated with it (that value can be a list or some other structure though). In Python, if 'd' is a dictionary, then expression 'd[k]' yields a value associated with key 'k' if that key is present in 'd'  otherwise an exception is thrown. Symmetrically, an expression 'd[k] = v' assigns value 'v' to the key 'k'. In that exercise you're given a prepopulated dictionary that has all the letters as keys, and each of them is associated with a score. Is it clear now?
