Python Python Collections (Retired) Tuples Two-ples

Dictionaries use what special operator?

Dictionaries use what special operator to unpack: for example, when using str.format( ______ my_dictionary ). Tuples, however, use the alternative string.format( ____ my_tuple).

I can't figure out the answer to this question, it has delayed me for a week now? Can someone please help me...
