Ans is Priority scheduling, because the higher priority process will preempte the lower priority process which may cause Starvation
but, SJF has two types: Preemptive and non-preemptive
Default is non-preemptive, so the newly arrived shorter job can't preempte the currently executing longer job.
In Gate questions they will explicitly specify the SJF type.
