1.Which of the following statements is FALSE?

A.In loop control, initialization and modification steps must lead to the appropriate termination condition.

B.The insertion sort algorithm becomes more efficient as the size of the list increases.

C.The binary search algorithm becomes more efficient as the size of the list increases.

D.Whereas a loop involves repeating a set of instructions in a manner in which the set is completed and then repeated, recursion involves repeating the set of instructions as a subtask of itself.

5.Match the definitions on the left with the terms on the right.

repeating a set of instructions as a subtask of itself (one is performed within the other)

a type of loop that tests for termination after the body is executed; often referred to as a "posttest loop"

a type of loop that tests for termination before the body is executed; often referred to as a "pretest loop"

repeating a set of instructions in which the set is completed and then repeated (one after the other)

A. while loop

B. sequential search

C. repeat loop

D. iteration

E. recursion

F. binary search

6.At most, how many entries in a list of 500 names will be interrogated when using the binary search algorithm?
