A. The addition and deletion of an item to/ from the linked list require modification of the existing pointers B. The linked list pointers do not provide an efficient way to search an item in the linked list C. Linked list pointers always maintain the list in ascending order D.

Each element of a list is comprised of two items, which is the data and a reference to the next node. The final node provides the reference to null. The entrance point into a linked list is called the head of the list. A linked list is a dynamic data structure, and linked lists are beneficial in dynamic memory allocation.
Those lists are used in operating systems. Insertion and deletion in related records are used in operating systems. Addition and deletion and complex data structures like tree graphs are implemented using linked lists.
