# Find the arrangement of queue at given time

n people are standing in a queue to buy entry ticket for the carnival. People present there strongly believe in chivalry. Therefore, at time = t, if a man at position x, finds a woman standing behind him then he exchanges his position with her and therefore, at time = t+1, woman is standing at position x while man is standing behind her.

Given the total number of people standing in a queue as n, particular instant of time as t and the initial arrangement of the queue in the form of a string containing ‘M’ representing man at position i and ‘W’ representing woman is at position i, find out the arrangement of the queue at time = t.

**Examples :**

Input : n = 6, t = 2 BBGBBG Output: GBBGBB Explanation: At t = 1, 'B' at position 2 will swap with 'G' at position 3 and 'B' at position 5 will swap with 'G' at position 6. String after t = 1 changes to "BGBBGB". Now at t = 2, 'B' at position = 1 will swap with 'G' at position = 2 and 'B' at position = 4 will swap with 'G' at position 5. String changes to "GBBGBB". Since, we have to display arrangement at t = 2, the current arrangement is our answer. Input : n = 8, t = 3 BBGBGBGB Output: GGBGBBBB

**Approach:**

Traverse the entire string at every moment of time from 1 to t and if we find pairwise “BG” then swap them and move to check the next pair.

Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

`// CPP program to find the arrangement` `// of queue at time = t` `#include <bits/stdc++.h>` `using` `namespace` `std;` ` ` `// prints the arrangement at time = t` `void` `solve(` `int` `n, ` `int` `t, string s)` `{` ` ` `// Checking the entire queue for ` ` ` `// every moment from time = 1 to` ` ` `// time = t.` ` ` `for` `(` `int` `i = 0; i < t; i++) ` ` ` `for` `(` `int` `j = 0; j < n - 1; j++) ` ` ` ` ` `/*If current index contains 'B' ` ` ` `and next index contains 'G' ` ` ` `then swap*/` ` ` `if` `(s[j] == ` `'B'` `&& s[j + 1] == ` `'G'` `) {` ` ` `char` `temp = s[j];` ` ` `s[j] = s[j + 1];` ` ` `s[j + 1] = temp;` ` ` `j++;` ` ` `}` ` ` ` ` `cout << s;` `}` ` ` `// Driver function for the program` `int` `main()` `{` ` ` `int` `n = 6, t = 2;` ` ` `string s = ` `"BBGBBG"` `;` ` ` `solve(n, t, s);` ` ` `return` `0;` `}` |
