Hash Tables with Quadratic Probing Multiple choice Questions and Answers (MCQs)
Which of the following schemes does quadratic probing come under?
Question 1 Explanation:
Quadratic probing comes under open addressing scheme to resolve collisions in hash tables.
Quadratic probing overcomes primary collision.
Question 2 Explanation:
Quadratic probing can overcome primary collision that occurs in linear probing but a secondary collision occurs in quadratic probing.
What kind of deletion is implemented by hashing using open addressing?
Question 3 Explanation:
Standard deletion cannot be performed in an open addressing hash table, because the cells might have caused collision. Hence, the hash tables implement lazy deletion.
In quadratic probing, if the table size is prime, a new element cannot be inserted if the table is half full.
Question 4 Explanation:
If quadratic probing is used and if the table size is prime, then, a new element can be inserted if the table is half empty.
Which of the following is the correct function definition for quadratic probing?
Question 5 Explanation:
The function of quadratic probing is defined as F(i)=i2. The function of linear probing is defined as F(i)=i.
