Implement an algorithm to simulate car re-organizing, Data Structure & Algorithms

Design  and implement  an algorithm  to simulate car  re-organizing of the train at the railway switching junction. You can only use stacks as the data structure to represent the train and the cars in each transit rail.

Task 1: For any given  input of car order is  c1,c2,...,cn  and  a number  k  of transit rails (k≥2), design and implement an algorithm to simulate the car ordering procedure by using stack operations only so that the output of the car order is 1,2,...,n.

Task 2:  Analyse efficiency of your algorithm using Big-O notation by counting the number of stack operations used in your algorithm ( worst case analysis).

Task 3: Assume that k=n/2+1. Improve your algorithm so that its complexity is in O(n).  

Task 4: Discuss the efficiency of your algorithm in relation to k if k can be any number such that k≥2.
