# Python3 Program to Modify given array to a non-decreasing array by rotation

• Last Updated : 27 Jan, 2022

Given an array arr[] of size N (consisting of duplicates), the task is to check if the given array can be converted to a non-decreasing array by rotating it. If it’s not possible to do so, then print “No“. Otherwise, print “Yes“.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {3, 4, 5, 1, 2}
Output: Yes
Explanation: After 2 right rotations, the array arr[] modifies to {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 4, 3}
Output: No

Approach: The idea is based on the fact that a maximum of N distinct arrays can be obtained by rotating the given array and check for each individual rotated array, whether it is non-decreasing or not. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

• Initialize a vector, say v, and copy all the elements of the original array into it.
• Sort the vector v.
• Traverse the original array and perform the following steps:
• Rotate by 1 in each iteration.
• If the array becomes equal to vector v, print “Yes“. Otherwise, print “No“.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## Python3

 `# Python 3 program for the above approach`` ` ` ` `# Function to check if a``# non-decreasing array can be obtained``# by rotating the original array``def` `rotateArray(arr, N):``   ` `    ``# Stores copy of original array``    ``v ``=` `arr`` ` `    ``# Sort the given vector``    ``v.sort(reverse ``=` `False``)`` ` `    ``# Traverse the array``    ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``1``, N ``+` `1``, ``1``):``       ` `        ``# Rotate the array by 1``        ``x ``=` `arr[N ``-` `1``]``        ``i ``=` `N ``-` `1``        ``while``(i > ``0``):``            ``arr[i] ``=` `arr[i ``-` `1``]``            ``arr[``0``] ``=` `x``            ``i ``-``=` `1``             ` `        ``# If array is sorted``        ``if` `(arr ``=``=` `v):``            ``print``(``"YES"``)``            ``return`` ` `    ``# If it is not possible to``    ``# sort the array``    ``print``(``"NO"``)`` ` `# Driver Code``if` `__name__ ``=``=` `'__main__'``:``   ` `    ``# Given array``    ``arr ``=`  `[``3``, ``4``, ``5``, ``1``, ``2``]`` ` `    ``# Size of the array``    ``N ``=` `len``(arr)`` ` `    ``# Function call to check if it is possible``    ``# to make array non-decreasing by rotating``    ``rotateArray(arr, N)``     ` `    ``# This code is contributed by ipg2016107.`

Output

```YES
```

Time Complexity: O(N2)
Auxiliary Space: O(N)
