To sort a dictionary in descending order set reverse = TRUE as the second argument of the sorted() method.



  • The sorted() function is used to return a sorted list of the items in an iterable object in Python. 
  • The sorted() function can also take other parameters to customize the sorting behavior, such as reverse, which specifies whether to sort in ascending or descending order, and key, which specifies a function that returns the value to be compared for each item.
  • The reverse parameter is a boolean value that can be either True or False. If reverse is set to True , the sorted() function will sort the items in descending order, meaning from largest to smallest or from Z to A.
  •  If reverse is set to False or omitted, the sorted() function will sort the items in ascending order, meaning from smallest to largest or from A to Z.

So, the given statement is true.
