# C# Program to Find the closest pair from two sorted arrays

Given two sorted arrays and a number x, find the pair whose sum is closest to x and **the pair has an element from each array**.

We are given two arrays ar1[0…m-1] and ar2[0..n-1] and a number x, we need to find the pair ar1[i] + ar2[j] such that absolute value of (ar1[i] + ar2[j] – x) is minimum.

Example:

Input: ar1[] = {1, 4, 5, 7}; ar2[] = {10, 20, 30, 40}; x = 32 Output: 1 and 30 Input: ar1[] = {1, 4, 5, 7}; ar2[] = {10, 20, 30, 40}; x = 50 Output: 7 and 40

**Output:**

The closest pair is [7, 30]
