Worst case and average case, Data Structure & Algorithms

Worst Case: For running time, Worst case running time is an upper bound with any input. This guarantees that, irrespective of the type of input, the algorithm will not take any longer time than the worst case time.

Best Case: This guarantees that under any circumstances the running time of algorithms will in any case take this much time.

Average case: It gives the average running time of algorithm. The running time for any provided size of input will be the average number of operations in all problem instances for a given size.
