Python: Sort the dictionary during the creation and print the members of the dictionary in reverse order

Python Collections: Exercise-34 with Solution

Write a Python program to create an instance of an OrderedDict using a given dictionary. Sort the dictionary during the creation and print the members of the dictionary in reverse order.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from collections import OrderedDict
dict = {'Afghanistan': 93, 'Albania': 355, 'Algeria': 213, 'Andorra': 376, 'Angola': 244}
new_dict = OrderedDict(dict.items())
for key in new_dict:
    print (key, new_dict[key])

print("\nIn reverse order:")
for key in reversed(new_dict):
    print (key, new_dict[key])

Sample Output:

Afghanistan 93
Albania 355
Algeria 213
Andorra 376
Angola 244

In reverse order:
Angola 244
Andorra 376
Algeria 213
Albania 355
Afghanistan 93

Flowchart:

Python: Tips of the Day

Use Reversed() In for Loops:

>>> tasks = ['laundry', 'picking up kids', 'gardening', 'cooking']
>>> for task in reversed(tasks):
...     print(task)
... 
cooking
gardening
picking up kids
laundry
