Maximum number of partitions that can be sorted individually to make sorted
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 09 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] of size n such that elements of arr[] in range [0, 1, ..n-1] where every number is present at most once. Our task is to divide the array into maximum number of partitions that can be sorted individually, then concatenated to make the whole array sorted.
Examples : 

Input : arr[] = [2, 1, 0, 3]
Output : 2
If divide arr[] into two partitions
{2, 1, 0} and {3}, sort then and concatenate
then, we get the whole array sorted.

Input : arr[] = [2, 1, 0, 3, 4, 5]
Output : 4
The maximum number of partitions are four, we
get these partitions as {2, 1, 0}, {3}, {4} 
and {5}

Input : arr[] = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Output : 6
The maximum number of partitions are six, we
get these partitions as {0}, {1}, {2}, {3}, {4} 
and {5}

The idea is based on the fact that if an element at i is maximum of prefix arr[0..i], then we can make a partition ending with i.  

C++




// CPP program to find Maximum number of partitions
// such that we can get a sorted array.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find maximum partitions.
int maxPartitions(int arr[], int n)
{
    int ans = 0, max_so_far = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
 
        // Find maximum in prefix arr[0..i]
        max_so_far = max(max_so_far, arr[i]);
 
        // If maximum so far is equal to index,
        // we can make a new partition ending at
        // index i.
        if (max_so_far == i)
            ans++;
    }
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 0, 2, 3, 4 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    cout << maxPartitions(arr, n);
    return 0;
