### Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array II

Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array II-

Suppose an array of length n sorted in ascending order is rotated between 1 and n times. For example, the array nums = [0,1,4,4,5,6,7] might become:

• [4,5,6,7,0,1,4] if it was rotated 4 times.
• [0,1,4,4,5,6,7] if it was rotated 7 times.

Notice that rotating an array [a[0], a[1], a[2], ..., a[n-1]] 1 time results in the array [a[n-1], a[0], a[1], a[2], ..., a[n-2]].

Given the sorted rotated array nums that may contain duplicates, return the minimum element of this array.

You must decrease the overall operation steps as much as possible.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [1,3,5]
Output: 1

Example 2:

Input: nums = [2,2,2,0,1]
Output: 0

Constraints:

• n == nums.length
• 1 <= n <= 5000
• -5000 <= nums[i] <= 5000
• nums is sorted and rotated between 1 and n times.

Follow up: This problem is similar to Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array, but nums may contain duplicates. Would this affect the runtime complexity? How and why?

## Solution-

To solve this problem we will use the binary search with some modifications. We observe that the minimum element is less than its left and right element.
we start searching start to end if start < mid element it mean our minimum element belong to another half.
