What is sorting - algorithms
(Sorting Algorithms Computer Science)

Sorting Algorithms are methods of reorganizing a large number of items into some specific order such as highest to lowest, or vice-versa, or even in some alphabetical order. These algorithms take an input list, processes it (i.e, performs some operations on it) and produce the sorted list.

What are sorting algorithms used for?

A Sorting Algorithm is used to rearrange a given array or list elements according to a comparison operator on the elements. The comparison operator is used to decide the new order of element in the respective data structure.
