  # Python | Reverse order of keys in a dictionary Method # 1: Using ` reversed () + sorted () + keys () ` + loop
A combination of the above functions can be used to accomplish this particular task. The ` sorted ` function is used to sort the keys, and in ` reversed `, the keys are retrieved using ` keys () ` in descending order, which are printed using a loop.

Output:

` The original dictionary is: {1: `Gfg`, 2:` best`, 4: `the`, 5 : `is`} The reversed order of dictionary keys: [5, 4, 2, 1] `

Method # 2: Using ` list () + keys () + sorted () + reversed () `
This is another method by which this task can be accomplished. This is just a slight variation of the above method, in which case the list function is used to convert the result to a list rather than using a loop to print variables.
