For in

If it was only one dictionary inside the list data, could I do this way? I mean, I need the "for in" bacause there is more than 1 dictionary or bacause the dictionary is inside of the list?

data = { "email": "we@afi.co", "name": "Warren Bates", "date_joined": "4/20/2048", "admin": "False", "id": "36" }

data['email'] = 'we@afi.co'

del(data['name'])

data['first_name'] = 'Warren Bates'.split(" ")[0]

data['last_name'] = 'Warren Bates'.split(" ")[1]

data['date_joined'] = '4/20/2048'

if data["admin"] == 'False': data["admin"] = False else: data['admin'] = True

data["id"] = int(36)

print(data)

When posting code, always use Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance, particularly the indentation which is crucial in Python. You might want to take a look at this video about Posting a Question.

But the loop is used for processing a list of multiple items, the kind of items doesn't matter. If you know the data will be only one item, you wouldn't need a list; but in this exercise, the function needs to process a list.
