 A Availability Heuristic B Representative Heuristics C Heuristics D Algorithm
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Heuristicâ€“simple thinking strategy that often allows us to make judgments and solve problems efficiently. Fixation-the inability to see a problem from a fresh perspective. One type of fixation is functional fixednessâ€”tendency to perceive the functions of objects as fixed and unchanging.

Detailed explanation-2: -Heuristics are simple, thinking strategies that allow us to make judgments and solve problems efficiently. Heuristics are less time consuming, but more error-prone than algorithms. Heuristics make it easier for us to use simple principles to arrive at solutions to problems.

Detailed explanation-3: -Heuristic: a simple thinking strategy that often allows us to make judgments and solve problems efficiently; usually speedier but also more error-prone than algorithms. Insight: a sudden and often novel realization of the solution to a problem; it contrasts with strategy-based solutions.

Detailed explanation-4: -Heuristics are mental shortcuts that can facilitate problem-solving and probability judgments. These strategies are generalizations, or rules-of-thumb, reduce cognitive load, and can be effective for making immediate judgments, however, they often result in irrational or inaccurate conclusions.

Detailed explanation-5: -An algorithm is a methodical, logical rule or procedure that guarantees a solution to a problem. A heuristic is a simple thinking strategy that is usually speedier than an algorithm but is also more error-prone. It can result in both correct and incorrect solutions.
