Assuming the node is in a singly linked list, what is the runtime complexity of searching for a specific node within a singly linked list?

  • The runtime is O(n) because in the worst case, the node you are searching for is the last node, and every node in the linked list must be visited.
  • The runtime is O(nk), with n representing the number of nodes and k representing the amount of time it takes to access each node in memory.
  • The runtime cannot be determined unless you know how many nodes are in the singly linked list.
  • The runtime is O(1) because you can index directly to a node in a singly linked list.
