    Explanation
    Keywords are reserved words in a programming language that have a specific meaning and cannot be used as identifiers or variable names. These words are predefined and have a specific purpose in the language syntax. They are used to define control structures, data types, and other programming elements. In order to avoid conflicts and ensure proper functioning of the language, keywords are reserved and cannot be used for any other purpose.

    ..............is an identifier whose value can change

    Explanation
    A variable is an identifier whose value can change. In programming, a variable is used to store and manipulate data. It can hold different values at different times during the execution of a program. The value of a variable can be assigned, updated, and retrieved as needed. Variables are essential in programming as they allow us to store and work with data dynamically, making our programs more flexible and adaptable.

    ............are used to add a remark or a note to the developer in the source code.

    Explanation
    Comments are used to add remarks or notes in the source code. They are not executed by the computer and are solely meant for human understanding. Comments can be used to explain the purpose of a code block, provide instructions, or make notes for future reference. They are ignored by the compiler or interpreter and have no impact on the functionality of the program.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    ...............is mutable.

    Explanation
     The given answer "Set", “List” or “Dictionary” is correct because they are  mutable data structures in programming. This means that elements can be added, removed, or modified withint. In contrast, immutable data structures cannot be modified once they are created. Therefore, a set fits the description of being mutable.

    Variables whose values can be changed after they are created and assigned are called .............

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mutable". Mutable variables are those whose values can be modified or changed after they have been created and assigned. This means that the value of a mutable variable can be updated or reassigned during the execution of a program. In contrast, immutable variables are those whose values cannot be changed once they have been assigned.

    Standard mapping data type in Python called .................

    Explanation
    A dictionary is a standard mapping data type in Python. It is an unordered collection of key-value pairs, where each key is unique. This data type allows efficient lookup, insertion, and deletion of elements based on their keys. Dictionaries are commonly used in Python to store and retrieve data quickly and easily.
