    Bubble sort,Quick sort,Insertion sort,Selection sort Merge sort,Heap sort Among the sorting algorithms quick sort is the best one

    can you differentiate above all sorting technique.And which type sorting will be more complex.list out the no of steps taken by the sorting technique by some basic examples.

    heap sort is the best sorting technique bccoz its complexity in best case ,worst and avg case is of O(nlogn)

    in worst case quick sort the complexity in best case and avg case is of O(nlogn)
    and worst case O(n^2)

    quick,insertion selection,heap,merge,bubble.bubble is the best one because in this sorting the adjacent numbers are compared and then sorted.

    the trustworthiness of a sorting algorithm generally depends on the input and also its size;hence it is difficult to actually conclude which one would be the best.but according to literatures quick sort is considered to be the best

    There are two type of sortings
    1.internal sort &
    2.External sort
    in this
    bubble sort,quick sort,insertion sort,Heap sort,merge sort,selection sort,bucket sort etc.....

    quick sort is the best one because its complexity is
    o(n log n).

    heap sort is the best one among all sortings....
    because complexity in all cases are same..and take less no of traverses.

    Bucket sort is great if you need to sort integers. Its complexity is O(n + (max-min)). If the number of integers is greater than the distance between the maximum and the minimum, you will get O(n) thus linear complexity. This property is proven using the maximum rule.
