If i'm printing both key and value in a dictionary it would be student.items before the print function. What if only key

Hi Matthew,

For questions like these it's good to get comfortable with reading the official docs. For instance check out The Python Dict object in particular its methods.

You'll see along with your_dict.items() there's also your_dict.values() and your_dict.keys(). They work pretty much as you'd expect! The values section of the doc even has some helpful examples :)

Happy coding,

Eric
