Hello Everyone,

I recently encountered this problem in an Interview.

You are given N. You have to construct an array of 2*N size with conditions:

  1. You have to use a number from 1 to N that means each number must be used exactly twice.

  2. Distance between indices of the same number should be equal to (number + 1).

The output should be true if the construction of such an array is possible else it should be false.

EG: Input 3 Output true

Explanation: possible array is [2, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3]

Note: The bounds on N were not given in the question.

Can anybody help me with this?
