model_object = SVC()

hyperparameters = {

grid = GridSearchCV(model_object,hyperparameters,cv=5,return_train_score=False),y)

gridSearch_result = grid.cv_results_

Above I am trying to tune some hyperparameters using sklearn GridSearchCV() , and among's other parameter I am not getting what is the purpose of the parameter "cv".

I looked online and also in the documentation and it says "number of cross validations to perform" , but what does that mean ? I know K-Fold and other cross validation methods. Does cv means the value of K ?

What I have tried:

I tried looking online into other resources
