## Data Structure Questions and Answers-Fibonacci Search

Question 1 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER] |

Which algorithmic technique does Fibonacci search use?

Brute force | |

Divide and Conquer | |

Greedy Technique | |

Backtracking |

Question 1 Explanation:

With every iteration, we divide the given array into two sub arrays(not necessarily equal).

Question 2 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER] |

Choose the recursive formula for the Fibonacci series.(n>=1)

F(n) = F(n+1) + F(n+2) | |

F(n) = F(n) + F(n+1) | |

F(n) = F(n-1) + F(n-2) | |

F(n) = F(n-1) - F(n-2) |

Question 2 Explanation:

None.

Question 3 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER] |

Write a function for the Fibonacci search method.

public static int fibSearch(final int key, final int[] a) { int low = 0; int high = a.length - 1; int fibCurrent = | |

None of the mentioned |

Question 3 Explanation:

Here instead of choosing middle of the array as a point of array division, we use Fibonacci numbers, the division index are strictly between two Fibonacci numbers.

Question 4 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER] |

What is the time complexity of Fibonacci Search?

O(logn) | |

O(n) | |

O(n ^{2}) | |

O(nlogn) |

Question 4 Explanation:

Since it divides the array into two parts, although not equal, its time complexity is O(logn), it is better than binary search in case of large arrays.

Question 5 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER] |

What are the advantages of Fibonacci Search?

When the element being searched for has a non uniform access storage | |

Can be used in magnetic tapes | |

Can be used for large arrays which do not fit in the CPUcache or in the RAM | |

All of the mentioned |

Question 5 Explanation:

When the speed of access depends on the location previously accessed, Fibonacci search is better compared to binary search as it performs well on those locations which have lower dispersion.
