##### Submissions: 517   Accuracy: 50.9%   Difficulty: Easy   Marks: 2

Given a number N. Find the number of operations required to reach N starting from 0. You have 2 operations available:

• Double the number
• Add one to the number

Example 1:

```Input:
N = 8
Output: 4
Explanation: 0 + 1 = 1, 1 + 1 = 2,
2 * 2 = 4, 4 * 2 = 8
```

Example 2:

```Input:
N = 7
Output: 5
Explanation: 0 + 1 = 1, 1 + 1 = 2,
1 + 2 = 3, 3 * 2 = 6, 6 + 1 = 7
```

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function minOperation() which accepts an integer N and return number of minimum operations required to reach N from 0.

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

Constraints:
1 <= N <= 106
