c = {"Date": "01", "Month": "Dec", "Year": "2021"}
d = {"01": "Date", "12": "Month", "2021": "Year"}
e = {"Dec", "2021"}

m = " ".join(a)
n = " ".join(b)
o = "/".join(c)
p = "/".join(d)
q = ", ".join(e)


The snapshot given below shows the sample output produced by above program, demonstrating the join() function in Python:

Of course the above program can also be created in this way too:

print(" ".join(["We", "love", "codescracker"]))
print(" ".join(("Python", "is", "fun")))
print("/".join({"Date": "01", "Month": "Dec", "Year": "2021"}))
print("/".join({"01": "Date", "12": "Month", "2021": "Year"}))
print(", ".join({"Dec", "2021"}))
