Compare the efficiencies of the algorithms used to compute the mode before and after sorting the array of elements. For such a list the Ith element is compared with I-1 elements of the auxiliary list of distinct values seen so far before being added to the list with a frequency of 1. The worst case number of comparisons made by the algorithm in creating the frequency list is n log n. So the efficiency class for the algorithm is 8.
Although it looks like a simple game at a high level, implementing it in a programming language was a great experience. I had to use recursion, sorting, searching, prefix trees also knows as trie'sand dynamic programming as I was improving the run time of the program. So here is a summary of the work I did in trying to write a very optimal solution to the Boggle game: Given a dictionary, you will have to construct words on the board following these rules: Longer words get more points.
There are a number of approaches that one can take to solve this problem. I designed three different algorithms to solve it. In this approach, we recurse using backtracking through the board and generate all possible words. For each word that are three or more letters long we check to see if it's in the dictionary.
If it is, we have a match! Here is the algorithm steps: Read in the dictionary in to a container in memory. Using backtracking, search the board for words.
If a word is found and it contains 3 or more letters, do a binary search on the dictionary to see if the word is there. If searching was successful in the previous step, print the letter out. Continue step as long as there are more words to construct on the board. Complexity of this approach: In this solution, we do a good job on the dictionary search.
Using binary search, we are quickly finding out whether a word is in dictionary or not.
But the real bottleneck is in searching the board for words. I am not exactly sure about this number, but you can find some discussions of it here: So this approach is is impractical and out of question for any useful implementation. From the previous approach, our major concern was the enormous search space on the board.
Fortunately, using a a prefix tree or trie data structure we could significantly cut down on this search space. The reasoning behind this improvement is that, if a word "abc" does not occur as a prefix to any word in the dictionary there is no reason to keep searching for words after we encounter "abc" on the board.Abstract.
The dynamic programming paradigm involves various important optimization problems. The set of optimization problems includes optimal binary search tree, longest common subsequence, binary knapsack, Matrix chain multiplication (MCM), and many more.
i;gorithm also uses dynamic programming, building optimal subtrees, starting with the smallest possible subtrees, and ending with the entire tree, analogous to Knuth’s algorithm  for constructing optimal binary search trees.

[5M] 4 a) Find an optimal solution to the knapsack instance n=7 objects and the capacity. For optimal binary search trees, given n items, each with a given probability of being selected, construct the binary search tree that will minimize the average search time for the items.
This is similar to Huffman codes in that they both output a binary tree, and they both try to minimize the average depth.
