Use the set data structure to Uniquify
Use a tuple to create a dictionary
Use a tuple from a function to create a quiz
Data structures play a crucial role in application development. The proper selection of data structures is important for efficient algorithm development. The availability of a list, for example, greatly simplifies sorting a collection of data items. It would be difficult to do this without that data structure, as you will see. This is why Programming languages like Python have certain fundamental data structures built into the language. In this course, you will create a Python application that reads from a file containing words and their definitions. You will use Python’s built-in data structures to make a multiple choice quiz based on words and their definitions. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Read the CSV file into a List Data Structure
Uniquify the data using the Set Data Structure
Create the Dictionary of Words and Definitions
Create a word List based on the set of Keys
Create a quiz using function that returns a Tuple

Love the material, Applied my knowledge of python, feel very confident like I knew it whats going to be next step. helped me build my algorithmic knowledge.
I ENJOYED DOING IT AND LEARNT NEW THINGS. COURSERA IS A VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE. IT IS A GOOD PLATFORM TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.
good for refresh python basic. also lead us through clean coding and show us how to think algorithmically.
What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
