Given an array **arr[]** of size N and a number K, the task is to find the length of the smallest subsequence such that the sum of the subsequence is greater than or equal to number K.**Example:**

Input:arr[] = {2, 3, 1, 5, 6, 3, 7, 9, 14, 10, 2, 5}, K = 35Output:4

Smallest subsequence with the sum greater than or equal to the given sum K is {7, 9, 14, 10}Input:arr[] = {1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 7, 6, 5, 12}, K = 70Output:-1

Subsequence with sum greater than equal to the given sum is not possible.

**Approach:**

- This problem can be solved with the help of priority queue
- Traverse input array and insert every array element into priority queue.
- Initialize variables that holds the sum of picked element from priority queue and the variable to get the count of picked element from priority queue to 0
- Pop the elements out from the priority queue untill the priority queue is not empty
- Add the element in into the
**sum** - Increase the count because the element is picked to contribute into the total sum
- Check if the
**sum**is greater than the given number**K**, If yes then stop checking and output the count.

- Add the element in into the

Below is the implementation of above approach.
