GATE CSE 2011 Question

An algorithm to find the length of the longest monotonically increasing sequence of numbers in an array A[0:n−1] is given below.

Let Li, denote the length of the longest monotonically increasing sequence starting at index i in the array. Initialize Ln−1=1.

For all i such that $0 \leq i \leq n-2$

$L_i = \begin{cases} 1+ L_{i+1} & \quad\text{if A[i] < A[i+1]} \\ 1 & \quad\text{Otherwise}\end{cases}$

Finally, the length of the longest monotonically increasing sequence is max(L0, L1,…,Ln−1)
Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A
The algorithm uses dynamic programming paradigm
B
The algorithm has a linear complexity and uses branch and bound paradigm
C
The algorithm has a non-linear polynomial complexity and uses branch and bound paradigm
D
The algorithm uses divide and conquer paradigm
