Simple Description

Selection Sort is an algorithm that processes a list of values by dividing it into two parts – the already sorted and the unsorted remaining portion.┬áThe first list value is replaced with the smallest value from second to the last value if the first value is greater than the smallest value. ┬áThen, the second value is replaced with the smallest value from the third to the last value and so on until it reaches the last value.
