Sorting Algorithm and Time Complexity Test 1

This Test will cover basic concepts of various sorting algorithms and time complexity of algorithms.

Q. What is recurrence for worst case of QuickSort and what is the time complexity in Worst case?
Q. Suppose we have a O(n) time algorithm that finds median of an unsorted array. Now consider a QuickSort implementation where we first find median using the above algorithm, then use median as pivot. What will be the worst case time complexity of this modified QuickSort
Q. Given an unsorted array. The array has a property that every element in the array is at most k distance from its position in sorted array, where k is a positive integer smaller than the size of array. Which sorting algorithm can be easily modified for sorting this array and what is the obtainable time complexity?

Q. Which of the following is not true about comparison based sorting algorithms?
Q. What is time complexity of fun()?
int fun(int n) 
{   
    int count = 0;   
    for (int i = n; i > 0; i /= 2)      
        for (int j = 0; j < i; j++)         
            count += 1;   
    return count; 
}
Q. What is time complexity of fun()?
int fun(int n) 
{   
    int count = 0;

Q. Consider the following program fragment for reversing the digits in a given integer to obtain a new integer. Let n = D1D2...Dm, where D1, D2 etc are digits forming the integer number. The loop invariant condition at the end of the ith iteration is:
rev = 0;  
while (n > 0)  
{     
    rev = rev*10 + n%10;     
    n = n/10;
