Given a string S containing only Uppercase letters, the task is to find the minimum number of replacement of characters needed to get a string with all vowels and if we cannot make the required string then print Impossible.
Input: str = "ABCDEFGHI" Output: AOUDEFGHI There are already 3 Vowels present in the string A, E, I we just change B and C to O and U respectively. Input: str = "ABC" Output: IMPOSSIBLE
Approach: Since there are only 5 vowels A, E, I, O, U. So, If the string length is less than 5 it is always impossible.
For a string of length greater than equal to 5, it is always possible. Just iterate over each character and replace it with the vowel that doesn’t exists in the string. If the current character is a vowel and if it is not visited earlier then we will not change the character to the vowel. If all the vowels are already present from early then no need to change any character.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
