Now the whole problem is with that IF STATEMENT...public class PAS2 { public static void main(String[] args) { int[] x = {1,4,2,6,5,3,4}; for(int z : modifiedselectionsort(x)){ System.out.print(z + "\t"); } public static int[] modifiedselectionsort(int[] x){ for(int i = 0; i < x.length/2; i++){ int min = x[i]; int max = x[i]; int minindex = i; int maxindex = i; for(int j = i+1; j < x.length-i; j++){ if(x[j] < min){ min = x[j]; minindex = j; } if(x[j] >= max){ max = x[j]; maxindex = j; } } [SIZE=4][FONT=Comic Sans MS]if (maxindex == i){ maxindex = minindex; // Algorithm's approach to max at beginning }[/FONT][/SIZE] int temp1 = x[i]; int temp2 = x[x.length-1-i]; x[i] = min; x[x.length-1-i] = max; x[minindex] = temp1; x[maxindex] = temp2; } return x; } }

if u don't use it and put {6,4,5} u will get 566 which is wrong but when u add that if statement (modification to adapt maximum numbers at 1st) and presumably everything is fine now but when I use an array like the one am using in this code u get 123381...

ANYBODY EXPLAIN WHY? ;/
