Given a sorted array of size n and given that there are numbers from 1 to n+1 with one missing, the missing number is to be found. It may be assumed that array has distinct elements.
Input : 1 3 4 5 6 Output : 2 Input : 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10 Output : 6
We traverse all elements. For every element a[i], we check if it is equal to i+1 or not. If not, we return (i+1).
