Kth odd number in an array

  • Last Updated : 01 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] and an integer K, the task is to find the Kth odd element from the given array.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, K = 2 
Output:
3 is the 2nd odd element from the given array
Input: arr[] = {2, 4, 6, 18}, K = 5 
Output: -1 
There are no odd elements in the given array. 
 

 

Approach: Traverse the array element by element and for every odd element encountered, decrement the value k by 1. If the value of k becomes equal to 0 then print the current element. Else after the traversal of the complete array, if the value of k is > 0 then print -1 as the total number of odd elements in the array are < k.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the kth odd element
// from the array
int kthOdd(int arr[], int n, int k)
{
 
    // Traverse the array
    for (int i = 0; i <= n; i++)
    {
 
        // If current element is odd
        if ((arr[i] % 2) == 1)
            k--;
 
        // If kth odd element is found
        if (k == 0)
            return arr[i];
    }
 
    // Total odd elements in the array are < k
    return -1;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
    int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
    int k = 2;
    cout << (kthOdd(arr, n, k));
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
public class GFG {
 
    // Function to return the kth odd element
    // from the array
    static int kthOdd(int arr[], int n, int k)
    {
 
        // Traverse the array
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
            // If current element is odd
            if (arr[i] % 2 == 1)
                k--;
 
            // If kth odd element is found
            if (k == 0)
                return arr[i];
        }
 
        // Total odd elements in the array are < k
        return -1;
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
        int n = arr.length;
        int k = 2;
        System.out.print(kthOdd(arr, n, k));
    }
}

Python3

# Function to return the kth odd
# element from the array
def kthOdd (arr, n, k):
 
    # Traverse the array
    for i in range(n):
 
        # If current element is odd
        if (arr[i] % 2 == 1):
            k -= 1;
 
        # If kth odd element is found
        if (k == 0):
            return arr[i];
 
    # Total odd elements in the
    # array are < k
    return -1;
 
# Driver code

n = len(arr);
k = 2;
print(kthOdd(arr, n, k));
