Dictionary functions

You are making a phonebook. The contacts are stored in a dictionary, where the key is the name and the value is a list, representing the number and the email of the contact. You need to implement search: take the name of the contact as input and output the email. If the contact is not found, output "Not found". contacts = { "David": ["123-321-88", "david@test.com"], "James": ["241-879-093", "james@test.com"], "Bob": ["987-004-322", "bob@test.com"], "Amy": ["340-999-213", "a@test.com"] } Note, that the email is the second element of the list. please provide the solution, im not getting the logic.

If we return "Not found" as a list item then we can grab it with -1 index: contacts = { "David": ["123-321-88", "david@test.com"], "James": ["241-879-093", "james@test.com"], "Bob": ["987-004-322", "bob@test.com"], "Amy": ["340-999-213", "a@test.com"] } #your code goes here name=input() print(contacts.get(name,["Not found"])[-1])

result = contacts.get(input(), "Not found") if result != "Not found": result = result[1] print(result) I'm sure there is a better implementation, but here is one way.. ^
