# Accept a list of data items and find the second largest and second smallest elements

```/* Write a C program to accept a list of data items and find the second       *
largest and second smallest elements in it. And also computer the average  *
of both. And search for the average value whether it is present in the     *
array or not. Display appropriate message on successful search.            */```
