The following lists represent 3 passes of a sorting algorithm. Which algorithm is being used to sort the list? 4 8 6 2 5 7 4 8 6 2 5 7 4 6 8 2 5 7

Bubble Sort


Selection Sort


Insertion Sort


None of the above

Explanation:
Detailed explanation1: The algorithms we will cover are: Bubble sort. Selection sort. Merge sort.
Detailed explanation2: Bubble Sort This sorting algorithm is the simplest sorting algorithm that works by repeatedly swapping the adjacent elements if they are in the wrong order. If we have total N elements, then we need to repeat the above process for N1 times.
Detailed explanation3: The least number of comparisons needed to sort (order) five elements is 8.
Detailed explanation4: How many passes does an insertion sort algorithm consist of? Explanation: An insertion algorithm consists of N1 passes when an array of N elements is given.
