Uhhhh so here's the question
1599616319575.png

The answer is C but I don't understand - if you use selection with ascending order you either get the lowest number on the left after one pass or the highest number on the right after one pass. So if you did the first way the array would be 043872 and if you did the second way the array would be 403728 (D). I thought the answer would be C after two passes (since the 7 moves to the next highest point behind 8). helppppp meeeee :`(

If by, pass you mean swap then C requires only one swap, not two. Take a look at the original array. D, on the other hand, requires 2 swaps.
