Check if array can be converted into strictly decreasing sequence

  • Last Updated : 24 May, 2021

Given an array arr[], the task is to check whether given array can be converted into a strictly decreasing sequence with the help of the below operation: 
 

  • Decrease any element(if it is greater than 1) by 1 in one operation

Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {11, 11, 11, 11} 
Output : Yes 
Explanation: 
The given sequence can be converted into 
arr[] = {11, 10, 9, 8}
Input: arr[] = {1, 1} 
Output: No 
Explanation: 
The given sequence cannot be converted into strictly decreasing sequence 
 

 

Approach: The idea is to check whether every element of the array is greater than or equal to (N – index of element), because if it is greater than or equal to (N – index of element) that means array can be converted into [N, N-1, N-2, ….1]
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation to check that
// array can be converted into a
// strictly decreasing sequence
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check that array
// can be converted into a
// strictly decreasing sequence
bool check(int* arr, int n)
{
    bool flag = true;
 
    // Loop to check that each element is
    // greater than the (N - index)
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
        // If element is less than (N - index)
        if (arr[i] < n - i) {
            flag = false;
        }
    }
 
    // If array can be converted
    if (flag) {
        return true;
    }
    else {
        return false;
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr1[] = { 11, 11, 11, 11 };
    int n1 = sizeof(arr1) / sizeof(arr1[0]);
 
    // Function calling
    if (check(arr1, n1)) {
        cout << "Yes" << endl;
    }
    else {
        cout << "No" << endl;
    }
}

Java




// Java implementation to check that
// array can be converted into a
// strictly decreasing sequence
class GFG{
 
// Function to check that array
// can be converted into a
// strictly decreasing sequence
static boolean check(int []arr, int n)
{
    boolean flag = true;
 
    // Loop to check that each element is
    // greater than the (N - index)
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
 
        // If element is less than (N - index)
        if (arr[i] < n - i)
        {
            flag = false;
        }
    }
 
    // If array can be converted
    if (flag)
    {
        return true;
    }
    else
    {
        return false;
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int arr1[] = { 11, 11, 11, 11 };
    int n1 = arr1.length;
 
    // Function calling
    if (check(arr1, n1))
    {
        System.out.print("Yes" + "\n");
    }
    else
    {
        System.out.print("No" + "\n");
    }
}
}

    for i in range(n):
         
        # If element is less than (N - index)
        if (arr[i] < n - i):
            flag = False;
             
    # If array can be converted
    if (flag):
        return True;
    else:
        return False;
