Python Exercise: Check whether a given key already exists in a dictionary

Python dictionary: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to check whether a given key already exists in a dictionary.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

d = {1: 10, 2: 20, 3: 30, 4: 40, 5: 50, 6: 60}
def is_key_present(x):
  if x in d:
      print('Key is present in the dictionary')
  else:
      print('Key is not present in the dictionary')
is_key_present(5)
is_key_present(9)

Sample Output:

Key is present in the dictionary                                                                              
Key is not present in the dictionary

Python: Convert byte to a string?

You need to decode the bytes object to produce a string:

>>> b"abcde"
b'abcde'

# utf-8 is used here because it is a very common encoding, but you
# need to use the encoding your data is actually in.
>>> b"abcde".decode("utf-8") 
'abcde'
