Jump Search Multiple choice Questions and Answers (MCQs)
Click on any option to know the CORRECT ANSWERS
Jump search algorithm requires which of the following condition to be true?
array should be sorted
array should have not be sorted
array should have a less than 64 elements
array should be partially sorted
Question 1 Explanation:
Jump sort requires the input array to be sorted. The algorithm would fail to give the correct result if array is not sorted.
Jumps are made in the jump search algorithm until .....
element having value less than that of the required element is found
element having value equal to the median of values of the array is found
element having value greater than that of the required element is found
middle element is found equal to the element being searched
Question 2 Explanation:
In jump search algorithm jumps are made until element having value greater than the value of element being searched is found. After this linear search is performed in backwards direction.
Which of the following step is taken after finding an element having value greater than the element being searched?
linear search takes place in the forward direction
linear search takes place in the backward direction
binary search takes place in the forward direction
binary search takes place in a backward direction
Question 3 Explanation:
First an element having value greater than the element being searched is found. After this linear search is performed in a backward direction.
How many jumps will be made in the worst case of jump search(let block jumped =k)?
Question 4 Explanation:
Worst case occurs when the value to be searched is in the last section of the array. So, in this case the number of jumps will be n/k.
What will be the maximum number of comparisons that can be made in jump search algorithm (assuming k to be blocks jumped)?
Question 5 Explanation:
Worst case occurs when the element being searched is present just after the element that has been compared while making the last jump. So, in this case k-1 comparisons will have to be made.
