CONVERT THIS QUICK SORT PROGRAM INTO PARTITION OF 3,5,7OR 11 ELEMENTS.

So you've pinched some code from the web and now want us to make it do what you need to get a good grade? Hmm, no. Do your own damn homework.

What you do is go up to your instructor and say "Excuse me, but I don't understand this assignment. While I understand quicksort, I don't understand what you mean when you say 'a partition of 3, 5, 7 or 11 elements'. Would you please help me to understand what it is you would like me to do?"
