#### Solution Preview

It is interpreted that by "home position" question means the location/index where the key should ideally be hashed to as per the hashing function in use.

The minimum number of keys that are hashed to their home positions using the linear probing technique is zero, because linear probing is used for a key when it's home position is ...

#### Solution Summary

It is interpreted that by "home position" question means the location/index where the key should ideally be hashed to as per the hashing function in use.
