The Question: Create a dictionary with the following key value pairs: 1) key: 'name', value: '', 2) key: 'topic', value: 'python'. Assign this dictionary to a variable called student.

In dictionaries you have key:value pairs. With topic being the key and python being our value, our example would look like this:

student = {'topic':'python'}

To add more elements to our dictionary, simply add a comma and continue the structure.
