# Build original array from the given sub-sequences

Given an integer **N** and valid subsequences of an array of integers where every element is distinct and from the range **[0, N – 1]**, the task is to find the original array.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 6, v[] = {

{1, 2, 3},

{1, 2},

{3, 4},

{5, 2},

{0, 5, 4}}

Output:0 1 5 2 3 4

Input:N = 10, v[] = {

{9, 1, 2, 8, 3},

{6, 1, 2},

{9, 6, 3, 4},

{5, 2, 7},

{0, 9, 5, 4}}

Output:0 9 6 5 1 2 8 7 3 4

**Approach:** Build a graph from given subsequences. Select each sub-sequence one by one and add an edge between two adjacent elements in the sub-sequence. After building the graph, perform topological sorting on the graph.

Refer topological sorting for understanding topological sort. This topological ordering is the required array.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
