Given an array arr[], the task is to generate a modified array such that all its elements are maximized by swapping of bits.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {10, 15} 
Output: 12, 15 
Explanation: 
Binary representation of (10)10 = (1010)2. Swap the second and third bit to get the binary representation as (1100)2 = (12)10
For 15, its binary representation is 1111, which can not be further changed to get greater value. 
Input: arr[] = {8, 15, 9, 10, 14} 
Output: 8, 15, 12, 12, 14 
 

 

Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem: 
 

  • Count the number of set and unset bits in every array element.
  • Shift all the set bits to the left(MSB) and all the unset bits to the right(LSB) to maximize the array elements.
  • If count of set bits or unset bits is equal to the number of bits of the array element, then that element cannot be altered( e.g. (7)10 = (111)2
  • Print the maximized elements in the array

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// C++ implementation to
// find maximum sequence by
// swapping bits
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to generate the maximized
// array elements
void maximizedArray(
    int arr[], int N)
{
    int num, i = 0;
 
    // Traverse the array
    while (N--) {
        num = arr[i];
        int one = 0;
        int zero = 0;
 
        // Iterate to count set and
        // unset bits
        while (num) {
 
            // Count of unset bits
            if (num % 2 == 0) {
                zero++;
            }
            else {
 
                // Count of set bits
                one++;
            }
 
            // Bitwise right shift
            num = num >> 1;
        }
 
        for (int j = zero; j < (one + zero);
             j++) {
 
            // Shifting all 1's to MSB
            // and 0's to LSB
            num += (1 << j);
        }
        cout << num;
        i++;
 
        if (N > 0)
            cout << ", ";
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
 
    int arr[] = { 8, 15, 9, 10, 14 };
    int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    maximizedArray(
        arr, N);
 
    return 0;
}


Java




// Java implementation to find
// maximum sequence by swapping bits
class GFG{
 
// Function to generate the maximized
// array elements
public static void maximizedArray(int arr[],
                                  int N)
{
    int num, i = 0;
 
    // Traverse the array
    for(int l = N; l > 0; l--)
    {
       num = arr[i];
       int one = 0;
       int zero = 0;
        
       // Iterate to count set and
       // unset bits
       while (num != 0)
       {
            
           // Count of unset bits
           if (num % 2 == 0)
           {
               zero++;
           }
           else
           {
                
               // Count of set bits
               one++;
           }
            
           // Bitwise right shift
           num = num >> 1;
       }
        
       for(int j = zero; j < (one + zero); j++)
       {
            
          // Shifting all 1's to MSB
          // and 0's to LSB
          num += (1 << j);
       }
       System.out.print(num);
       i++;
        
       if (N > 0)
           System.out.print(", ");
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String args[])
{
    int arr[] = { 8, 15, 9, 10, 14 };
    int N = arr.length;
 
    maximizedArray(arr, N);
}
