There are n unsorted arrays: A1, A2, ..., An. Assume that n is odd. Each of A1, A2, ..., An contains n distinct elements. There are no common elements between any two arrays. The worst-case time complexity of computing the median of the medians of A1, A2, ..., An is
A
$$O\left( n \right)$$
B
$$O\left( {n\log n} \right)$$
C
$$O\left( {{n^2}\log n} \right)$$
D

The given diagram shows the flowchart for a recursive function $$A(n).$$ Assume that all statements, except for the recursive calls, have $$O(1)$$ time complexity. If the worst case time complexity of this function is $$O\left( {{n^\alpha }} \right),$$ then the least possible value (accurate up to two decimal positions) of $$\alpha$$ is ____________ .
