## LSD Radix Sort Multiple choice Questions and Answers (MCQs)

## Click on any option to know the CORRECT ANSWERS

Question 1 |

Which of the following is the distribution sort?

Heap sort | |

Smooth sort | |

Quick sort | |

LSD radix sort |

**UPSC GS Questions answers**

Question 1 Explanation:

In Distribution sort the inputted values are distributed to multiple intermediate structures which are then combined and placed on the output. And LSD radix sort distributes values into buckets based on the digits within values, so it is a distribution sort.

Question 2 |

What is the worst case time complexity of LSD radix sort?

O(nlogn) | |

O(wn) | |

O(n) | |

O(n + w) |

**Puzzles Questions answers**

Question 2 Explanation:

Time complexity of LSD radix sort depends upon the word size and the number on items. It runs in O(wn) time in worst case, where n is the number of inputted elements and w is the number of digits in the largest number.

Question 3 |

LSD radix sort requires ..... passes to sort N elements.

(w/logR) | |

N(w/logR) | |

(w/log(RN)) | |

(wN/log(N)) |

**History Questions answers**

Question 3 Explanation:

LSD radix sort sorts the N elements in (w/logR) passes where w is the number of digits in largest number and R(radix) is extra space required for performing the sorting operation.

Question 4 |

Which of the following is false?

LSD radix sort is an integer sorting algorithm | |

LSD radix sort is a comparison sorting algorithm | |

LSD radix sort is a distribution sort | |

LSD radix sort uses bucket sort |

**KBC Questions answers**

Question 4 Explanation:

LSD radix sort uses bucket sort for grouping the keys based on the digits at that value. And as it grouped the keys based on the digits at that values, it is integer sorting algorithm.

Question 5 |

Which of the following sorting algorithm is stable?

Heap sort | |

Selection sort | |

In-place MSD radix sort | |

LSD radix sort |

**Sociology Questions answers**

Question 5 Explanation:

In LSD radix sort after sorting the multiple elements with the same key will be in the same order as they were in the input array. So LSD radix sort is stable sort.
