int main()

    int A[] = { 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77};
    int n = sizeof(A) / sizeof(A[0]);  //n is the size of the array

    printf("\nEnter Key Element to Search :--> ");
    scanf("%d", &key);

    int result = binarySearch(A, 0, n - 1, key);

    if(result == -1)
    {
		 printf("\nElement is not present in array");
	}
	else
	{
		printf("\nElement is present at index %d", result);
	}
    return 0;
}

Output:

Array Elements :--> 11  22  33  44  55  66  77
Enter Key Element to Search :--> 3
