In the problems below A[1, ...,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); n] denotes an array consisting of arbitrarynreal numbers, and A[j] denotes the element in thej-th place of the array A[1, ...,n].

1) Letkbe a fixed natural number. Consider the family [tex]A_{k}[/tex] of all arrays A[1, ...,n] satisfying that for everyi≤nthere are at mostkelements among A[1, ..., (i - 1)] larger than A[i]. Show that there exists a constant C such that every array A[1, ...,n] from [tex]A_{k}[/tex] can be sorted in time [tex]Cn[/tex].

nb. This seems like a simple question, I just need to adapt to the style of approaching these types of questions. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
