Algorithms | Sorting | Question 17
In quick sort, for sorting n elements, the (n/4)th smallest element is selected as pivot using an O(n) time algorithm. What is the worst case time complexity of the quick sort?
(D) (n^2 log n)
Explanation: The recursion expression becomes:
T(n) = T(n/4) + T(3n/4) + cn
After solving the above recursion, we get (nLogn).
