Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it will not throw an exception but, dict['a'] will return 5. After running dict={'a':1,'b':2,'a':3}, dict ={'a':3,'b':2}.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a random process. . if u do dict['a'] u can either get the output as 1 or 3. . Alrt So u mean to say we can have duplicate keys for different values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I beleive that the 'a':3 part of the initialization just sets 'a' to 3. This is what I got typing in Idle. >>> d={'a':1,'b':2,'a':3} >>> d {'a': 3, 'b': 2}
