  • Last Updated : 22 Nov, 2014

In a permutation a1…..an of n distinct integers, an inversion is a pair (ai, aj) such that i aj. What would be the worst case time complexity of the Insertion Sort algorithm, if the inputs are restricted to permutations of 1…..n with at most n inversions?
(A) Θ (n2)
(B) Θ (n log n)
(C) Θ (n1.5)
(D) Θ (n)


Answer: (D)

Explanation: Insertion sort runs in Θ(n + f(n)) time, where f(n) denotes the number of inversion initially present in the array being sorted.
