Write the following Python code to do the following (Complete ALL of the following using dictionary comprehension)

  1. Given a list [("name", "Elie"), ("job", "Instructor")], create a dictionary that looks like this {'job': 'Instructor', 'name': 'Elie'} (the order does not matter).
  2. Given two lists ["CA", "NJ", "RI"] and ["California", "New Jersey", "Rhode Island"] return a dictionary that looks like this {'CA': 'California', 'NJ': 'New Jersey', 'RI': 'Rhode Island'}. You can research the zip method to help you.
