Given an array H representing heights of buildings. You have to count the buildings which will see the sunrise (Assume : Sun rise on the side of array starting point).

Example 1:

N = 5
H[] = {7, 4, 8, 2, 9}
Output: 3
Explanation: As 7 is the first element, it
can see the sunrise. 4 can't see the
sunrise as 7 is hiding it.  8 can see.
2 can't see the sunrise. 9 also can see
the sunrise.

Example 2:

N = 4
H[] = {2, 3, 4, 5}
Output: 4
Explanation: As 2 is the first element, it
can see the sunrise.  3 can see the
sunrise as 2 is not hiding it. Same for 4
and 5, they also can see the sunrise.

Your Task:  
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function countBuildings() which takes the array of integers and n as parameters and returns an integer denoting the answer.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)
