# Neither Minimum nor Maximum solution leetcode

## Neither Minimum nor Maximum solution leetcode

Given an integer array `nums` containing distinct positive integers, find and return any number from the array that is neither the minimum nor the maximum value in the array, or `-1` if there is no such number.

Return the selected integer.

Example 1:

```Input: nums = [3,2,1,4]
Output: 2
Explanation: In this example, the minimum value is 1 and the maximum value is 4. Therefore, either 2 or 3 can be valid answers.
```

Example 2:

```Input: nums = [1,2]
Output: -1
Explanation: Since there is no number in nums that is neither the maximum nor the minimum, we cannot select a number that satisfies the given condition. Therefore, there is no answer.
```

Example 3:

```Input: nums = [2,1,3]
Output: 2
Explanation: Since 2 is neither the maximum nor the minimum value in nums, it is the only valid answer.
```

Constraints:

• `1 <= nums.length <= 100`
• `1 <= nums[i] <= 100`
• All values in `nums` are distinct
