# How to find the nth minimum number in array?

So here I am trying to implement it in a easy way ,rather than the other solutions I came across like sorting it ,so I wanna know is my solution right for nth minimum number? Like if minimum number is 2 in the following array next minimum will be 3 ,and if 3 is minimum number ,next one will be 4,thks in advance! Edit: also in this approach I need to find maximum number first which is 8 here https://code.sololearn.com/cO1PsQIKsUpE/?ref=app

a = [8,80,543,89,965332,57,9,6,4,3,6,9,0,7,5,5,8,]
#print(f"{min(a)} is smallest")
var_len = len(a)
fl = []
for loop in range(var_len) :
for i in a:
lst = []
for k in a:
if k<i:
lst.append(1)
else :
lst.append(0)
if 1 not in lst:
fl.append(str(i))
a.remove(i)
print(" < ".join(fl))
See this logic I simply built up instead of sort method. This will give you a sorted list. Or else simply use sort function and find nth minimum numbers

Use vector Stl library sort elements and you can make your code in less lines .

♨️TEJAS MK-82♨️ as I already mentioned I can use that sort from stl but i don't wanna ,it comes with some overhead as well ,might be expensive and wondering if they really allow using that sort method in interviews?

丹ⓨㄩک廾 I can sort easily using insertion or built in sort method in c++ but I wanna know do I have to really? Can't I implement it in an easy way like finding maximum number first and then getting nth minimum number or is this approach bad?
