What Is A Data Structure?

A data structure is a way of organizing and storing data in a computer efficiently.

Data structures can vary in complexity from simple arrays and lists to more intricate structures like trees, graphs, queues, stacks, and hash tables. Each data structure has its advantages and is suitable for specific tasks or operations.

The selection of a data structure usually relies on the nature of the problem being solved and the operations that need to be executed frequently. For instance, if you need to access elements quickly based on their indices, an array could be a suitable option. On the other hand, if you require fast insertion and deletion operations, a linked list might be a better choice.
