Linear Search
 A Algorithms with exponential or factorial efficiencies are examples of algorithms that run in an unreasonable amount of time. B a problem for which no algorithm can be constructed that is always capable of providing a correct yes-or-no answer C a search algorithm which checks each element of a list, in order, until the desired value is found or all elements in the list have been checked. D a general description of a task that can (or cannot) be solved with an algorithm
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -A linear search is the simplest approach employed to search for an element in a data set. It examines each element until it finds a match, starting at the beginning of the data set, until the end. The search is finished and terminated once the target element is located.

Detailed explanation-2: -Linear or Sequential Search This algorithm works by sequentially iterating through the whole array or list from one end until the target element is found. If the element is found, it returns its index, else-1.

Detailed explanation-3: -Linear search is a sequential searching algorithm where we start from one end and check every element of the list until the desired element is found. It is the simplest searching algorithm.

Detailed explanation-4: -Linear search is a search algorithm that starts from the beginning of a list, and checks each element until the search key is found or the end of the list is reached. Linear search algorithm checks each element until key is found.
