1.                 This is the standard Quicksort algorithm. Let’s assume thatthe Partition function always places the pivot element in thecenter. The call Quicksort (A, 1, A.length)sorts the whole array.

Quicksort (A, p, r)

           if p

               q ß Partition(A, p, r);

   Quicksort (A, p, q-1)

   Quicksort (A, q+1, r)

Wemodify the algorithm to find the kth smallest element in anarray.

int QuickFindk (A, p, r, k)

           if p

               q ß Partition(A, p, r);

                if ( q == k)

return A[q];

                           if (k

           returnQuickFindk (A, p, q-1,k)


           returnQuickFindk (A, q+1, r,k)

Assume that Partition always places qin the middle.

(a)    Write the recurrence for this algorithm

(b)    Explain how the algorithm works

(c)    Solve the recurrence to find the complexityof finding the kth smallest element in an array/
