This is because there are conflicting keys in your dictionnary. This may not be obvious but 1 and True represents the same thing because in Python the boolean True equates the integer 1 and False equates the integer 0. So when you do fruits.get(1) since you have a conflict it gets the latest entry with that key, at least that is what I have seen happen. Run this code to see what I mean. For each list look at the order of the entries and check what the output is. https://code.sololearn.com/c7a6sNRDtNm7/?ref=app
