Python: Grouping a sequence of key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists

Python dictionary: Exercise-46 with Solution

Write a Python program to create a dictionary grouping a sequence of key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists.

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Define a function 'grouping_dictionary' that groups a sequence of key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists.
def grouping_dictionary(l):
# Create an empty dictionary 'result' to store the grouped data.
result = {}
for k, v in l:
# Use 'setdefault' to append values 'v' to the list associated with key 'k'.
result.setdefault(k, []).append(v)
return result

# Create a list 'colors' containing key-value pairs (color, value).
colors = [('yellow', 1), ('blue', 2), ('yellow', 3), ('blue', 4), ('red', 1)]

# Print a message indicating the start of the code section and the original list.
print("Original list:")
print(colors)

# Print a message indicating the intention to group the key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists.
print("\nGrouping a sequence of key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists:")

# Call the 'grouping_dictionary' function to group the key-value pairs and print the resulting dictionary.
print(grouping_dictionary(colors))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[('yellow', 1), ('blue', 2), ('yellow', 3), ('blue', 4), ('red', 1)]

Grouping a sequence of key-value pairs into a dictionary of lists:
{'yellow': [1, 3], 'blue': [2, 4], 'red': [1]}
```
