Python: Convert a given dictionary to a list of tuples

Python dictionary: Exercise-77 with Solution

Write a Python program to convert given a dictionary to a list of tuples.

  • Use dict.items() and list() to get a list of tuples from the given dictionary.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def test(d):
  return list(d.items())
 
d = {'Red': 1, 'Green': 3, 'White': 5, 'Black': 2, 'Pink': 4}
print("Original Dictionary:")
print(d)
print("\nConvert the said dictionary to a list of tuples:")
print(test(d))

Sample Output:

Original Dictionary:
{'Red': 1, 'Green': 3, 'White': 5, 'Black': 2, 'Pink': 4}

Convert the said dictionary to a list of tuples:
[('Red', 1), ('Green', 3), ('White', 5), ('Black', 2), ('Pink', 4)]
