Respond True or False to the following statements about sorting:
TRUE
FALSE
When a list is sorted in ascending order the first element in the
list is the lowest.
TRUE
FALSE
The term permutation refers to the rearrangement of a list
where all the original values are maintained.
TRUE
FALSE
One factor to consider when deciding on a sorting algorithm is
the amount of memory required to perform the sort.
TRUE
FALSE
Whether the data in a list is already partly in order or completely random has no bearing on the choice of sort routine.
TRUE
FALSE
Sort routines that maintain the order of elements with equal
value are considered stationary.
TRUE
FALSE
Exchanging two elements in a list is referred to as shifting.
TRUE
FALSE
To exchange two elements in a list, a temporary holding place
is needed so no data is lost.
TRUE
FALSE
Moving an element to a new position and then ‘sliding’ the
remaining elements over is known as shifting.
TRUE
FALSE
A shift does not require a temporary holding place.
Identify the sort(s) based on the description provided:
a. Orders elements as it finds them out of order: __________________________
b. Performs sorting in-place: __________________________
c. Uses recursion to sort: __________________________
d. Works well with partially sorted lists: __________________________
e. Despite an increase in elements, the speed of sort does not significantly
decrease: __________________________
f. Uses a pivot element: __________________________
g. Uses shifting: __________________________
h. Uses swapping: __________________________
i. Has a big ‘O’ efficiency of O(nlogn): ___________________________
j. Has a big ‘O’ efficiency of O(n2): ___________________________
3.
The item that is being searched for is called a ________.
A search routine where each element is examined one at a time in order is called
the __________________________.
This search only works on a list that is sorted: ____________________.
With each search interval or pass in a binary search, the area to search is
____________.
If the item that is being searched for is located at the very first index of a list, the
search routine that will find it faster is: ____________________.
On average, the ____________ search is faster than the ________________
search.
The binary search has an average big ‘O’ efficiency level of __________.
4.
Create and manipulate a 1-D array that holds 30 integer numbers:
a. Fill the array with the consecutive numbers 101 to 130. (Display the array.)
b. Let the user enter a number to be removed from the list. (i.e. 108)
c. Using the binary search method, find the number in the list.
d. Once the number is found remove it by shifting proceeding numbers over to
the left. Initialize the final empty cell at the end of the array to 0. (Display the
array again.)
