Suppose there is an array of numbers
{s 1 ,s 2 ,....,s n ,,......,t 1 ,t 2 ,....,t n }
you have to implement the code in C such that you will get the result
{s 1 , t 1 , s 2 , t 2 , ...., s n , t n }
using divide and conquer concept.

Example: INPUT- {1,2,3,4,5,6}

What I have tried:

i have googled about this and about dividing into odd and even entries of an array using divide and conquer ....Got nothing...!

Show your code, even if partial and explain where you are stuck

"you have to implement the code in C ..."

The key word in that homework assignment being YOU.

YOU have to implement the code. Not some random strangers on the internet.

If you don't know where to start, then talk to your teacher.

The assignment is not "about dividing into odd and even entries".

Compare the input and output definitions (not the numerical examples) to find out which algorithm is used:
The first element of the output array is the first element of the input array (s1).
The second element of the output array is the ??? element of the input array (t1).

Then read about Divide and conquer algorithm - Wikipedia[^].

Then you might recognise that the sentence
... every algorithm that uses recursion or loops could be regarded as a "divide and conquer algorithm".
might apply here.
