# Remove elements to make array sorted

Given an array of integers, the task is to remove elements from the array to make array sorted. That is, remove the elements which do not follow an increasing order.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 4, 3, 5, 7, 8, 6, 9, 10}
Output: 1 2 4 5 7 8 9 10

Input: arr[] = {10, 12, 9, 5, 2, 13, 14}
Output: 10 12 13 14

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: Traverse the given array and for every element which is greater than or equal to the previously taken element, add this element to another array else skip to next element. In the end, the newly created array will be sorted according to Stalin sort.

1. For each element check if the element is greater than the previous element or not.
• If yes then check for next element.
• Else remove that element.
2. After all the elements have been traversed, we will get a sorted array.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach ` ` `  `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to sort the array ` `// by removing misplaced elements ` `void` `removeElements(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// brr[] is used to store ` `    ``// the sorted array elements ` `    ``int` `brr[n], l = 1; ` ` `  `    ``brr[0] = arr[0]; ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i < n; i++) { ` `        ``if` `(brr[l - 1] <= arr[i]) { ` `            ``brr[l] = arr[i]; ` `            ``l++; ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Print the sorted array ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < l; i++) ` `        ``cout << brr[i] << ``" "``; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `arr[] = { 10, 12, 9, 10, 2, 13, 14 }; ` `    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr[0]); ` `    ``removeElements(arr, n); ` ` `  `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java implementation of the approach ` ` `  `class` `GFG ` `{ ` `     `  `// Function to sort the array ` `// by removing misplaced elements ` `static` `void` `removeElements(``int` `[]arr, ``int` `n) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// brr[] is used to store ` `    ``// the sorted array elements ` `    ``int` `[]brr = ``new` `int``[n]; ` `    ``int` `l = ``1``; ` ` `  `    ``brr[``0``] = arr[``0``]; ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = ``1``; i < n; i++) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``if` `(brr[l - ``1``] <= arr[i])  ` `        ``{ ` `            ``brr[l] = arr[i]; ` `            ``l++; ` `        ``} ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Print the sorted array ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < l; i++) ` `        ``System.out.print(brr[i] + ``" "``); ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `static` `public` `void` `main (String[] args) ` `{ ` `    ``int` `[]arr = { ``10``, ``12``, ``9``, ``10``, ``2``, ``13``, ``14` `}; ` `    ``int` `n = arr.length; ` `    ``removeElements(arr, n); ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by Code_Mech. `

Output:

```10 12 13 14
