 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
What might happen if the sequence is wrong?
 A The algorithm may be overly long B The algorithm may be inefficient C The algorithm may produce unexpected results D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The sequence of a program is extremely important as carrying out instructions in the wrong order leads to a program performing incorrectly. Running this program would result in an error, because it tries to calculate the average before it knows the values of the numbers.

Detailed explanation-2: -Why is sequencing important? It is crucial that the steps in an algorithm are performed in the right order-otherwise the algorithm will not work correctly.

Detailed explanation-3: -Definition: Sequence, the order that commands are executed by a computer, allows us to carry out tasks that have multiple steps. In programming, sequence is a basic algorithm: A set of logical steps carried out in order.

Detailed explanation-4: -Every step in an algorithm has its own logical sequence so it is easy to debug. 5. By using algorithm, the problem is broken down into smaller pieces or steps hence, it is easier for programmer to convert it into an actual program.
