 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
Algorithms in computer science have three main steps
 A Start by mathematics equations, Analyze data, Stop when finding answer B Start with complex calculation, find values of variables, Stop when we find answer C Start with input data, Do complex calculation, Stop when we find answer D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -An algorithm is made up of three basic building blocks: sequencing, selection, and iteration.

Detailed explanation-2: -An algorithm is not computer code; it’s written in plain English and may be in the form of a flowchart with shapes and arrows, a numbered list, or pseudocode (a semi-programming language). It doesn’t beat around the bush. It’s very clear and efficient, and it has a start, middle, and end.

Detailed explanation-3: -An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure that defines a set of instructions that must be carried out in a specific order to produce the desired result. Algorithms are generally developed independently of underlying languages, which means that an algorithm can be implemented in more than one programming language.

Detailed explanation-4: -Common examples include: the recipe for baking a cake, the method we use to solve a long division problem, the process of doing laundry, and the functionality of a search engine are all examples of an algorithm.
