1. ► A good hash function will be collision free

2. ► Hash map guarantees constant time value access

3. ► A pointer map ordering varies from one run to another

4. ► hash_map is also part of the standard C++

5. ► Merging two heaps is a O(lg(n)) operation

6. ► STL map is unordered

7. ► Elements in hash_map are ordered

8. ► STL map provides access in lg(n) time

9. ► Quick sort always performs better than heapsort

10. ► Heapify operation just takes O(lg(n)) steps

11. ► In a min-heap, value at a node is always less than that of its children

12. ► Heapsort relies on heap to pick the minimum or maximum element
