Language/Type: Python collections dict

Write the output produced when the following function is passed each of the following dictionaries.

def mystery(dictionary):
    result = {}
    for key in dictionary:
        if key < dictionary[key]:
            result[key] = dictionary[key]
            result[dictionary[key]] = key

Though dictionaries store their contents in unpredictable order, for this problem, write the pairs sorted by alphabetical ordering of the keys. Write your answer in this format: {'key': 'value', 'key': 'value'}

{'two': 'deux', 'five': 'cinq', 'one': 'un', 'three': 'trois', 'four': 'quatre'}
{'skate': 'board', 'drive': 'car', 'program': 'computer', 'play': 'computer'}
{'siskel': 'ebert', 'girl': 'boy', 'H': 'T', 'ready': 'begin', 'first': 'last', 'begin': 'end'}
{'cotton': 'shirt', 'tree': 'violin', 'seed': 'tree', 'light': 'tree', 'rain': 'cotton'}
