Describe the worst-case time complexity, measured in terms of comparisons, of the search algorithm described in Exercise 28 of Section 3.1.
Step 1 of 3
In this problem we have to analyze the worst-case time complexity of the search algorithms.
In search algorithm we first divide the list of given ordered number into four parts.
The division is done by [1,n/4],[n/4+1,n/2],[n/2+1+1,3n/4],[3n/4+1,n]
