Sorting is the process of arranging data in a preferred order in a data structure. Sorting data makes it easier to swiftly and simply search through it. A dictionary is the most basic example of sorting. When we used to look up a term in a dictionary before the Internet, we would do it in alphabetical order. This made things a lot easier.
