# Circular Array Rotation

See the original problem on HackerRank.

## Solutions

You can actually rotate the array:

in Javascript (by Alessia Bragagnolo)

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15  function circularArrayRotation(a, k, queries) { let result = []; while (k > 0) { let tmp = a.pop(); a.unshift(tmp); k--; } for (let i = 0; i < queries.length; i++) { result.push(a[queries[i]]); } return result; } 

But… we don’t really need to rotate the array:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10  int N, K, Q, idx; cin >> N >> K >> Q; K %= N; vector arr(N); copy_n(istream_iterator(cin), N, begin(arr)); const auto diff = N-K; while (Q--) { cin >> idx; cout << arr[(idx+diff)%N] << endl; } 

in Python:

 1 2 3 4  n, k, q = map(int, input().split()) arr = [int(x) for x in input().split()] for _ in range(q): print(arr[int(input()) - k % n]) 

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11  circularArrayRotation :: [Int] -> Int -> [Int] -> [Int] circularArrayRotation a k = fmap go where go q = a !! mod (q - k) n n = length a main = do [_, k, _] <- fmap read . words <$> getLine a <- fmap read . words <$> getLine qs <- fmap read . lines <$> getContents putStr . unlines$ show <\$> circularArrayRotation a k qs
