In this program, we are going to insert a new value into the dict and print keys. Next, we updated a value and displayed the keys.

emp = {'name': 'Kevin', 'age': 25 , 'job': 'HR'}
print(emp)

print(emp.keys())

emp['age'] = 27
print(emp.keys())

emp['Sal'] = 725000
print(emp.keys())
{'name': 'Kevin', 'age': 25, 'job': 'HR'}

dict_keys(['name', 'age', 'job'])

dict_keys(['name', 'age', 'job'])

dict_keys(['name', 'age', 'job', 'Sal'])
