Order of efficiency - linear search, Data Structure & Algorithms

Linear search employee an exhaustive method of verified each element in the array against a key value. Whereas a match is found, the search halts. Will sorting the array before utilizing the linear search contain any effect on its order of efficiency?

In a best case condition, the element was determined with the fewest number of comparisons. Where, inside the list, would the key element be situated?
