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);
}
