The challenge is not how to implement it. I know how. Instead, the question is what sorting algorithm needs to be used to get the fastest sorting performance especially when the number of words increase in the sentence. Quick sorting is believed to be the fastest when it comes to numbers to sort, but is that still true when it comes to strings sort alphabetically?

Thanks, Azbilegt Chuluunbat

It is statistically very good, anyway, there are alternatives. See, for instance Analysis of different sorting techniques - GeeksforGeeks[^].

Since they are (like numbers) (alphabetically) ordered, that doesn't really matter.
