Python Exercise: Remove duplicates from Dictionary

Python dictionary: Exercise-17 with Solution

Write a Python program to remove duplicates from Dictionary.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

student_data = {'id1': 
   {'name': ['Sara'], 
    'class': ['V'], 
    'subject_integration': ['english, math, science']
  {'name': ['David'], 
    'class': ['V'], 
    'subject_integration': ['english, math, science']
    {'name': ['Sara'], 
    'class': ['V'], 
    'subject_integration': ['english, math, science']
   {'name': ['Surya'], 
    'class': ['V'], 
    'subject_integration': ['english, math, science']

result = {}

for key,value in student_data.items():
    if value not in result.values():
        result[key] = value


Sample Output:

{'id2': {'subject_integration': ['english, math, science'], 'class': ['V'], 'name': ['David']}, 'id4': {'subje
ct_integration': ['english, math, science'], 'class': ['V'], 'name': ['Surya']}, 'id1': {'subject_integration'
: ['english, math, science'], 'class': ['V'], 'name': ['Sara']}}
