## Pandas Time Series: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to create
a) a specific date using timestamp.
b) date and time using timestamp.
c) a time adds in the current local date using timestamp.
d) current date and time using timestamp.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````import pandas as pd
#from datetime import datetime
print("\nA specific date using timestamp:")
print(pd.Timestamp('2016-11-10'))
print("\nDate and time using timestamp:")
print(pd.Timestamp('2012-05-03 11:30'))
print("\nA time adds in the current local date using timestamp:")
print(pd.Timestamp('11:30'))
print("\nCurrent date and time using timestamp:")
print(pd.Timestamp("now"))
``````

Sample Output:

```A specific date using timestamp:
2016-11-10 00:00:00

Date and time using timestamp:
2012-05-03 11:30:00

A time adds in the current local date using timestamp:
2020-08-17 11:30:00

Current date and time using timestamp:
2020-08-17 10:49:29.945939
```

Example:

```# How to merge two dictionaries
# in Python 3.5+

x = {'p': 1, 'q': 3}
y = {'q': 5, 'r': 8}

z = {**x, **y}

z
{'r': 4, 'p': 1, 'q': 3}

z = dict(x, **y)
print(z)
```

Output:

```{'p': 1, 'q': 5, 'r': 8}
```
