# Kth largest node among all directly connected nodes to the given node in an undirected graph

Given two arrays u and v, representing a graph such that there is an undirected edge from u[i] to v[i] (0 ≤ v[i], u[i] < N) and each node has some value val[i] (0 ≤ i < N). For each node, if the nodes connected directly to it are sorted in descending order according to their values (in case of equal values, sort it according to their indices in ascending order), print the number of the node at kth position. If total nodes are < k then print -1.

Examples:

Input: u[] = {0, 0, 1}, v[] = {2, 1, 2}, val[] = {2, 4, 3}, k = 2
Output:
2
0
0
For 0 node, the nodes directly connected to it are 1 and 2
having values 4 and 3 respectively, thus node with 2nd largest value is 2.
For 1 node, the nodes directly connected to it are 0 and 2
having values 2 and 3 respectively, thus node with 2nd largest value is 0.
For 2 node, the nodes directly connected to it are 0 and 1
having values 2 and 4 respectively, thus node with 2nd largest value is 0.

Input: u[] = {0, 2}, v[] = {2, 1}, val[] = {2, 4, 3}, k = 2
Output:
-1
-1
0

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: The idea is to store the nodes directly connected to a node along with their values in a vector and sort them in increasing order, and the kth largest value for a node, having n number of nodes directly connected to it, will be (n – k)th node from last.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to print Kth node for each node ` `void` `findKthNode(``int` `u[], ``int` `v[], ``int` `n, ``int` `val[], ``int` `V, ``int` `k) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// Vector to store nodes directly ` `    ``// connected to ith node along with ` `    ``// their values ` `    ``vector > g[V]; ` ` `  `    ``// Add edges to the vector along with ` `    ``// the values of the node ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) { ` `        ``g[u[i]].push_back(make_pair(val[v[i]], v[i])); ` `        ``g[v[i]].push_back(make_pair(val[u[i]], u[i])); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Sort neighbors of every node ` `    ``// and find the Kth node ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < V; i++) { ` `        ``if` `(g[i].size() > 0) ` `            ``sort(g[i].begin(), g[i].end()); ` ` `  `        ``// Get the kth node ` `        ``if` `(k <= g[i].size()) ` `            ``printf``(``"%d\n"``, g[i][g[i].size() - k].second); ` ` `  `        ``// If total nodes are < k ` `        ``else` `            ``printf``(``"-1\n"``); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``return``; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `V = 3; ` `    ``int` `val[] = { 2, 4, 3 }; ` `    ``int` `u[] = { 0, 0, 1 }; ` `    ``int` `v[] = { 2, 1, 2 }; ` ` `  `    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(u) / ``sizeof``(``int``); ` `    ``int` `k = 2; ` ` `  `    ``findKthNode(u, v, n, val, V, k); ` ` `  `    ``return` `0; ` `} `
