Frog River One Codility Problem – Javascript 100% Correct Solution

The Frog River One problem states that a frog can only jump from one side to the other of the river when leaves are placed at each “lane” on the river.

I built another array to keep track of the positions where the leaves have fallen already. This array only has X elements, although the initial array can have a lot more.

Each time when a position gets marked the first time, I incremented the sum of the distance the frog can move currently by one.

When the sum reaches X (the width of the river) I can return that moment as the solution. If this never happens, I returned -1.

Here is the code with O(n) complexity.


function solution(X, A) {
  let B = Array(X).fill(0)
  let sum = 0
  for (let i = 0; i < A.length; i++) {
        if (A[i] <= X){
            if (B[A[i]-1] === 0) {
            B[A[i]-1] = 1;
            sum += 1;
            if (sum === X){
                return i
  return (-1)
