Which sorting algorithm splits a list of items into individual lists?
 A Merge B Bubble C Insertion D None of them do
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Merge sort is a recursive algorithm that continually splits a list in half. If the list is empty or has one item, it is sorted by definition (the base case). If the list has more than one item, we split the list and recursively invoke a merge sort on both halves.

Detailed explanation-2: -The Merge Sort algorithm is divided into two parts. The first part repeatedly splits the input list into smaller lists to eventually produce single-element lists.

Detailed explanation-3: -Explanation: Merge sort uses the technique of divide and conquer in order to sort a given array. It divides the array into two halves and apply merge sort algorithm to each half individually after which the sorted versions of these halves are merged together.

Detailed explanation-4: -Merge sort keeps on dividing the list into equal halves until it can no more be divided. By definition, if it is only one element in the list, it is sorted. Then, merge sort combines the smaller sorted lists keeping the new list sorted too.
