## Ternary Heap Multiple choice Questions and Answers (MCQs)

 Question 1
What is the time complexity for inserting a new item in a ternary heap of n elements?
 A O (log n/ log 3) B O (n!) C O (n) D O (1)
Question 1 Explanation:
In order to insert a new item in a ternary heap data structure having n elements, the heap has great efficiency for inserting them. So the time complexity for worst case is found to be O (log n/ log 3).

 Question 2
Is decrease priority operation performed more quickly in a ternary heap with respect to the binary heap.
 A True B False
Question 2 Explanation:
Ternary heap is a type of data structure in the field of computer science. It is a part of the Heap data structure family. Due to the swapping process, the decrease priority operation performs more quickly in a ternary heap.

 Question 3
What is the time complexity for decreasing priority of key in a minimum ternary heap of n elements?
 A O (log n/ log 3) B O (n!) C O (n) D O (1)
Question 3 Explanation:
In order to decrease the priority of an item in a ternary heap data structure having n elements, the heap has great efficiency for decreasing them. So the time complexity for worst case is found to be O (log n/ log 3). This is due to the upwards swapping process.

 Question 4
What is the time complexity for increasing priority of key in a maximum ternary heap of n elements?
 A O (log n/ log 3) B O (n!) C O (n) D O (1)
