Let's build a dictionary named student.

Here's how you can add a key-value pair to a dictionary.

The student dictionary includes these pairs:

'first name''Ann'
'last name''Elliot'
'city''New York'


Single ' ' and double " " quotes in Python are interchangeable and equivalent.


  1. Construct the following dictionary: 'name': 'Max', 'position': 'data scientist', 'level': 'junior'.
  2. To the existing dictionary, append a new key named experience (as a string) with the value of 1.

Everything was clear?
