A
1/2
B
1/3
C
1/4
D
1/6
Soln.
Ans: C
In binary search algorithm, after every search operation, the search gets reduced by 1/4.

### Question 2

The efficiency of the selection sort algorithm is same as that of the bubble sort algorithm.
A
False
B
True
C
Depends on List
D
None
Soln.

A
Unsorted
B
Partially sorted
C
Sorted
D
all of them
Soln.
Ans: C
To apply binary search algorithm, you should ensure that the list to be searched is sorted list.

### Question 5

Which of these is not a problem of the bubble sort? [More than one can be correct]
A
Turtle
B
Bat
C
Cat
D
Rabbit
Soln.
Ans: BC

### Question 6

```int s,t, numItems = 10;

for(s=(numItems - 1); s>=0; s--)
{

for(t=1;t<=s;t++)
{

if(arr[t-1]>arr[t])
{

temp=arr[t-1];

arr[t-1]=arr[t];

arr[t]=temp;

}

}

}

```
A
Selection Sort
B
Bubble Sort
C

### Question 7

A selection sort compares adjacent elements, and swaps them if they are in the wrong order.
A
True
B
False
C
Depends on Elements
D
None of the above
Soln.
Ans: B

### Question 8

In hashing, conversion of the key to an address is done by a relation, which is known as ?
A
Hashing relation
B
Formula
C
Hashing Function
D
None of them
Soln.
Ans: C
In hashing, conversion of the key to an address is done by a relation, which is known as a Hashing Function

### Question 9

Two main measures for the efficiency of an algorithm are:
A
Processor and Memory
B
Complexity and Capacity
C
Time and Space
D
Data and Space
Soln.
Ans: C

### Question 10

How many passes are required to sort an array with five elements by using the bubble sort algorithm?
A
0
B
5
C
4
D
1
Soln.
Ans: C
4 because (n-1) passes is required where n=5
