A 3-ary max heap is like a binary max heap, but instead of 2 children, nodes have 3 children. A 3-ary heap can be represented by an array as follows: The root is stored in the first location, a[0], nodes in the next level, from left to right, is stored from a[1] to a[3]. The nodes from the second level of the tree from left to right are stored from a[4] location onward. An item x can be inserted into a 3-ary heap containing n items by placing x in the location a[n] and pushing it up the tree to satisfy the heap property.

Suppose the elements 7, 2, 10 and 4 are inserted, in that order, into the valid 3- ary max heap found in the previous question. Which one of the following is the sequence of items in the array representing the resultant heap?

A
10, 7, 9, 8, 3, 1, 5, 2, 6, 4
B
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
C
10, 9, 4, 5, 7, 6, 8, 2, 1, 3
D
10, 8, 6, 9, 7, 2, 3, 4, 1, 5

$$O(n \log \log n)$$
B
