Sort 1 to N by swapping adjacent elements

Given an array A of size N consisting of elements 1 to N. A boolean array B consisting of N-1 elements indicates that if B[i] is 1, then A[i] can be swapped with A[i+1].
Find out if A can be sorted by swapping elements.

Examples:

Input : A[] = {1, 2, 5, 3, 4, 6}
        B[] = {0, 1, 1, 1, 0}
Output : A can be sorted
We can swap a[3] with a[4] and then a[4] with a[5].

Input : A[] = {2, 3, 1, 4, 5, 6}
        B[] = {0, 1, 1, 1, 1}
Output : A can not be sorted
We can not sort A by swapping elements.

Here we can swap only A[i] with A[i+1]. So to find whether array can be sorted or not. Using boolean array B we can sort array for a continuous sequence of 1 for B. At last, we can check, if A is sorted or not.

Output:

A can be sorted

Alternative Approach
Here we discuss a very intuitive approach which too gives the answer in O(n) time for all cases. The idea here is that whenever the binary array has 1, we check if that index in array A has i+1 or not. If it does not contain i+1, we simply swap a[i] with a[i+1].
The reason for this is that the array should have i+1 stored at index i. And if at all the array is sortable, then the only operation allowed is swapping. Hence, if the required condition is not satisfied, we simply swap. If the array is sortable, swapping will take us one step closer to the correct answer. And as expected, if the array is not sortable, then swapping would lead to just another unsorted version of the same array.
