Question:

Since python has no brackets, how does it determine where a function, class, or loop begins and ends?

Alex S.
Answer:

Python uses whitespace and spacing to determine where a function, class, or loop begins and ends. All function, class, or loops instructions must be indented four spaces to the right of the function, class, or loop header.

Question:

What is the difference between method overriding and method overloading in Java?

Alex S.
Answer:

An overridden method is a method with both the same signature and parameters as another method. Overridden methods are used for subclasses that must perform the same method as their superclass, but in a different (often more specific) way. An overloaded method is a method with the same signature, but different parameters as another method, this is useful for writing methods that can accept different inputs, but still produce useful outputs.

Question:

What is the worst case and average case time complexities for using the quicksort algorithm on an array of size n?

Alex S.
Answer:

The average case is O(nlog(n)), and the worst case is O(n^2). How often each case occurs is dependent on the pivot selection algorithm. If the algorithm always selects the first/last element as the pivot, and the data is already sorted it will make n^2 comparisons, since the pivot is always the min/max element. In most other cases, it makes nlog(n) comparisons.
