How values() works when a dictionary is modified?

Answer: When a value is changed or modified in the dictionary, the view object also gets updated:

fruits = {'apple': 120, 'orange': 30, 'grapes': 80}

values = fruits.values()

print('Original:', values)

# delete an item from dictionary
del[fruits['apple']]

print('Updated:', values)

Output:

Original: dict_values([120, 30, 80])
Updated: dict_values([30, 80])
