Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It works by passing through the the sequence n1 times, working its way up the sequence. In each pass, it looks for the smallest element in the sequence (say I'm sorting in ascending order), storing it in a register. Once the pass is complete, it swaps the smallest element with the element in the current index and moves on.
