Assuming the server name is in DNS, you should be able to use nslookup or dig to get the server name from the ip address. Not all servers are in DNS though.

Suppose we want to sort a huge collection of 1 trillion, 10^12, elements. Doing so with Selection Sort or Insertion Sort would require about n^2 = (10^12)^2 = 10^24 or 1 sextillion comparisons.
True or False?
