Given an array A of N lowercase letter strings of the same length. The task is to find the count of columns that are not sorted in increasing order.
Input: A = ["cba", "dah", "ghi"] Output: 1 2nd Column ["b", "a", "h"] is not sorted in increasing order. Input: A = ["zyx", "wvu", "tsr"] Output: 3 All columns are not sorted in increasing order.
Approach: Traverse each column one by one and check if the next element is greater than the previous element in the same column. If not the increment the countOfCol by 1 and keep traversing till all the columns get traversed. Print the value of countOfCol.
