- Q1Which of the following best describes the Linear Search algorithm?A sorting algorithm that sorts an array by repeatedly finding the minimum element and moving it to the beginning.A search algorithm that divides the array into two halves and recursively searches for the target element.A search algorithm that employs a hash function to map keys to array indices.A sorting algorithm that compares adjacent elements and swaps them if they are in the wrong order.A search algorithm that sequentially checks each element of a list until a match is found or the whole list has been searched.30s
- Q2What is the purpose of the Linear Search algorithm?To find the position of a target element in a list.To sort an array of elements in ascending order.To efficiently search through a binary search tree.To calculate the average of a list of numbers.30s
- Q3Which statement accurately describes the worst-case scenario for the Linear Search algorithm?The target element can be found in the middle of the list, requiring n/2 iterations.The target element is not present in the list, requiring the search to iterate through all elements.The target element is the first element in the list, requiring only one iteration.The target element is present at an unknown position in the list.30s
- Q4What is the key characteristic of the Linear Search algorithm?It randomly selects elements to search for the target element.It divides the array into two halves and recursively searches for the target element.It searches through elements in a sequential manner from start to end.It employs a hash function to map keys to array indices.It compares adjacent elements and swaps them if they are in the wrong order.30s
- Q5Which statement accurately describes the Linear Search algorithm?It selects random elements from the list to search for the target element.It sorts the list in ascending order before searching for the target element.It divides the list into two halves and recursively searches for the target element.It compares the target element with each element in the list until a match is found or all elements have been checked.30s
