Python OrderedDict Key-Value removal

Python OrderedDict Data Type: Exercise-6 with Solution

Write a Python program to create an OrderedDict with the following key-value pairs:
'Laptop': 40
'Desktop': 45
'Mobile': 35
'Charger': 25
Now remove the first key-value pair and print the updated OrderedDict.

Sample Solution:


from collections import OrderedDict

# Create an OrderedDict with the given key-value pairs
ordered_dict = OrderedDict([
    ('Laptop', 40),
    ('Desktop', 45),
    ('Mobile', 35),
    ('Charger', 25)

print("Original OrderedDict:")

# Remove the first key-value pair
print("\nRemove the first key-value pair of the said OrderedDict:")

# Print the updated OrderedDict
print("\nUpdated OrderedDict:")


Original OrderedDict:
OrderedDict([('Laptop', 40), ('Desktop', 45), ('Mobile', 35), ('Charger', 25)])

Remove the first key-value pair of the said OrderedDict:

Updated OrderedDict:
OrderedDict([('Desktop', 45), ('Mobile', 35), ('Charger', 25)])

In the exercise above, the popitem(last=False) method of the OrderedDict is used to remove the first key-value pair (with the lowest index) from the dictionary. The last parameter is set to False to indicate that the item should be removed from the beginning of the dictionary.
