The advantage of list over Arrays is flexibility. Over flood is not a problem until the computer memory is bushed. When the individual record are quite large, it may be difficult to determine the amount of next storage that may be in need for the required arrays. With dynamic allocation, there is no need to effort to allot in advance. Changes in list, placing and deletion can be made in the central point of the list, more speedily than in the nearby lists.
The drawback of lists is that the link themselves take room which is in count to the space that may be wanted for data. One more disadvantage of lists is that they are not right for random access. With lists, we need to go across a long path to reach a desired node.
