paurakhsharma profile image Paurakh Sharma Humagain ・1 min read
# Day-02 dict .get()

my_dict = {'hello': 'world'}

try:
    my_dict['world']
    # Throws KeyError exception
except KeyError:
    print('Cannot find the provided key in the dictionary')

# Use .get() to be safe from the exception
print(my_dict.get('world'))
# prints None in the console

# You can pass second argument as default value
print(my_dict.get('world', 'default value'))
# prints 'default value'
