You are given an array a1, a2, ..., an consisting of n integers, and an integer k. You have to split the array into exactly k non-empty subsegments. You'll then compute the minimum integer on each subsegment, and take the maximum integer over the k obtained minimums. What is the maximum possible integer you can get?
Definitions of subsegment and array splitting are given in notes.
The first line contains two integers n and k (1 ≤ k ≤ n ≤ 105) — the size of the array a and the number of subsegments you have to split the array to.
The second line contains n integers a1, a2, ..., an ( - 109 ≤ ai ≤ 109).
Print single integer — the maximum possible integer you can get if you split the array into k non-empty subsegments and take maximum of minimums on the subsegments.
A subsegment [l, r] (l ≤ r) of array a is the sequence al, al + 1, ..., ar.
Splitting of array a of n elements into k subsegments [l1, r1], [l2, r2], ..., [lk, rk] (l1 = 1, rk = n, li = ri - 1 + 1 for all i > 1) is k sequences (al1, ..., ar1), ..., (alk, ..., ark).
In the first example you should split the array into subsegments [1, 4] and [5, 5] that results in sequences (1, 2, 3, 4) and (5). The minimums are min(1, 2, 3, 4) = 1 and min(5) = 5. The resulting maximum is max(1, 5) = 5. It is obvious that you can't reach greater result.
In the second example the only option you have is to split the array into one subsegment [1, 5], that results in one sequence ( - 4, - 5, - 3, - 2, - 1). The only minimum is min( - 4, - 5, - 3, - 2, - 1) = - 5. The resulting maximum is - 5.
