Find the missing element in a given permutation.

Programming language:
Spoken language:

An array A consisting of N different integers is given. The array contains integers in the range [1..(N + 1)], which means that exactly one element is missing.

Your goal is to find that missing element.

Write a function:

int solution(int A[], int N);

that, given an array A, returns the value of the missing element.

For example, given array A such that:

the function should return 4, as it is the missing element.

Assume that:

- N is an integer within the range [0..100,000];
- the elements of A are all distinct;
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..(N + 1)].

Complexity:

- expected worst-case time complexity is O(N);
- expected worst-case space complexity is O(1), beyond input storage (not counting the storage required for input arguments).
