Right answer is (a) True

Easiest explanation - In order to perform the splitting on the rope data structure, one can split the given string into two new string S1 and S2 in O (log n) time. So, the time complexity for worst case is O (log n). The split operation can be performed if the split point is either at the end of the string or in the middle of the string.
