Apparently, from the above output command to check the available package or module in the Windows operating system using ‘pip freeze’, the pandas package or module is in the output list. It means, the installation of ‘pandas’ package or module is a success. The list is in ‘ pandas==1.0.5’ where there are another packages or modules is exist because of the ‘pandas’ installation. It will also install pytz and numpy package or module.
