8) Recall that we presented an algorithm to remove a key at position j (which is also described in the text.) Here is another possible way to remove a key at position j: move the key at A[currentSize] to A[j] and call percolateDown (j). Will this work? If so, prove it. Otherwise, give an example for which it fails. 8 points Solution: Consider a heap of size 6 containing 1 10 2 12 15 3. Let j = 4. It is easy to see
that in this case the above algorithm fails. 9) Write a procedure to delete the second smallest key from a min heap. Your procedure should perform only a constant number of additional operations besides calling INSERT or DELETEMIN. (It should return the second smallest key.) What is the complexity of your procedure? Express your answer using O notation in terms of N = the number of nodes in the heap. 8 points Solution:
deleteSecondMin( ) {
int temp1 = deleteMin();
int temp2 = deleteMin();
insert(temp1);
return temp2;
}
Time complexity = 3 x O(log n) = O(log n)...
