Write a function that returns 2 for input 1 and returns 1 for 2

Write a function which returns 1 that 2 is passed and return 2 when 1 is passed.

Source: Adobe Interview Experience | Set 19 (For MTS)

A simple solution is to compare the passed value with 1 and 2.

int invert(int x)
   if (x == 1) return 2;
   else return 1;

Another solution is to use subtraction

int invertSub(int x)
   return (3-x);

We can also use bitwise xor operator.

int invertXOR(int x)
   return (x ^ 1 ^ 2);
