Choose the correct output for
>>>dict(m=8, n =9)

(a) {m=8,n=9}

(b) {‘m’ = 8. ‘n’ =9}

(c) {‘m’: 8, ‘n’ :9}

(d) {m:n, 8:9}



The code uses the dict() function to create a dictionary object in Python. 

The dict() function takes keyword arguments, where each argument is a key followed by an equal sign and a value . For example, dict(m=8, n=9) means that the key ‘m’ has the value 8 and the key ‘n’ has the value 9. 

The syntax for representing a dictionary object in Python is to use curly braces {} and separate each key-value pair by a comma. The key and the value are separated by a colon :. For example, {‘m’: 8, ‘n’: 9} is a valid dictionary object in Python.

Therefore, the only option that matches this syntax is (c) {‘m’: 8, ‘n’ :9}.

So, the correct answer is (c) {‘m’: 8, ‘n’ :9}.
