The _________ is adequate for searching through small arrays?
A) binary
B) unary
C) linear search
D) relative
E) None of these

## Solution:

The correct answer is liner serach.

Explanation

Linear search is a very simple search algorithm. In this type of search, a sequential search is made over all items one by one. Every item is checked and if a match is found then that particular item is returned, otherwise the search continues till the end of the data collection.

Algorithm

``````Linear Search ( Array A, Value x)

Step 1: Set i to 1
Step 2: if i > n then go to step 7
Step 3: if A[i] = x then go to step 6
Step 4: Set i to i + 1
Step 5: Go to Step 2
Step 6: Print Element x Found at index i and go to step 8
Step 8: Exit``````

Pseudocode

``````procedure linear_search (list, value)

for each item in the list
if match item == value
return the item's location
end if
end for

end procedure``````

This will guide you.
