The answer depends on what you mean by quickest. For most sorting problems, it just doesn’t matter how quick the sort is because it is done infrequently or other operations take significantly more time anyway. There are three sorting methods in this author’s toolbox that are all very fast and that are useful in different situations. Those methods are quick sort, merge sort, and radix sort.

This is context dependent, however following can be the consideration -

  1. Worst Case behavior,
  2. Average Case behavior
  3. Extra space needed
  4. Flexibility

So in summary your question is not very specific...
