﻿ C : New array shifting an element in left direction

# C Exercises: Shift an element in left direction and return a new array

## C-programming basic algorithm: Exercise-68 with Solution

Write a C program to shift an element in the left direction and return a newly created array.

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

// Function prototype for 'print_array'
void print_array(int parray[], int size);

int main(void){
int arr_size;

// Declaration and initialization of an integer array 'a1'
int a1[] = {10, 20, 30, 40};
arr_size = sizeof(a1)/sizeof(a1[0]);

// Printing the elements of the original array 'a1'
printf("Elements in original array are: ");
print_array(a1, arr_size);

// Declaration and initialization of an integer array 'result'
int result[arr_size];

// Loop to generate the elements of the new array 'result'
for (int i = 0; i < arr_size; i++)
{
result[i] = a1[(i + 1) % arr_size];
}

// Printing the elements of the new array 'result'
printf("\nElements in new array are: ");
print_array(result, arr_size);
}

// Definition of the 'print_array' function
void print_array(int parray[], int size)
{
int i;
// Loop to print the elements of the array
for( i = 0; i < size - 1; i++)
{
printf("%d, ", parray[i]);
}
// Printing the last element
printf("%d ", parray[i]);
printf("\n");
}
``````

Sample Output:

```Elements in original array are: 10, 20, 30, 40

Elements in new array are: 20, 30, 40, 10
```
