What is buddy memory management of free lists?

a) modified version of first fit
b) buddy allocation keeps several‭ ‬free lists,‭ ‬each one holds blocks which are of one particular size
c) modified version of best fit
d) a tree representation of free lists

Answer: b
Explanation: When an allocation request is received,‭ ‬the list that holds blocks that are just large enough to satisfy the request are considered, and an open location is returned.‭ ‬If no‭ ‬free‭ ‬blocks that are smaller than two times the size that are requested are available,‭ ‬a larger block is split in two to satisfy the requirements.
