So, I don't understand what author want to say from " Player 1 picks one of the numbers from either end of the array followed by the player 2 and then player 1 and so on." Is there any mistake in this sentence?
Player 1 picks either end of the array or what?
Why player 1 should followed by player 2? I think player 1 pick first, right?
The statement is correct but just a little bit arcane.
either end = both ends.
"followed by the player 2" means player 2 follows player 1
Make it more readable:
Player 1 picks either the first or the last element of the array, then player 2 picks and then so on.
@Xing_ Thanks for your replying. I think each player can pick a number from either head or tail, am I correct?
@BHC that is correct. But once a player picks a number, it is removed from the sequence, which renders the end of the sequence changed.
e.g [1,2,3,4,5], player 1 can pick 1 or 5, if P1 pick 1, then the array becomes [2,3,4,5]. Then player 2 can make the choice between 2 or 5.
