The correct answer is (a) True

Explanation: In the incremental algorithms, the complicated structure on n items is built by first building it on n − 1 items. And then we make the necessary changes to fix things in adding the last item. Insertion sort builds the sorted sequence one element at a time. Therefore, it is an example of an incremental algorithm.
