f1 = 10n
f2 = nlogn
f3 = n√n 

Which one of the following options arranges the functions in the increasing order of asymptotic growth rate?
(A) f3,f2,f1
(B) f2,f1,f3
(C) f1,f2,f3
(D) f2,f3,f1


Answer: (D)

Explanation: On comparing power of these given functions :
f1 has n in power.
f2 has logn in power.
