Question

In the context of this exercise, what other data structures can be used to implement separate chaining?

Answer

When implementing separate chaining, you will usually want to utilize data structures that will easily grow as you add items.

In languages such as Python, some of these data structures may include lists, trees, linked lists, and dictionaries. You might even use other hash maps at each index!
