    What is array of LinkedList

    what is array of linked list, how it is declared and whats the use of it.

    Probably the declaration of array of LinkedList is as below
    Code:
    struct ll
    {
           int i;
           struct ll *next;
    }array[10];
    but whats the use of it......we are using LinkedList for optimization, but again we are getting into STATIC memory allocation....

    Hash table. You can sort through one giant list, or 1/Nth of that.

    What use is a screwdriver? What about a screwdriver that's a bit bigger? I mean, they're both still screwdrivers, right?

    arrays of lists
    lists of lists
    arrays of arrays
    a tree of arrays of lists.

    Use whatever makes sense in managing the data for the problem you're trying to solve.

    Many problems can be solved with different structures, making some aspects of the problem easier, and others harder. Choosing which is experience.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
