Timer is Running

Given the total number of persons n and a number k which indicates that k-1 persons are skipped and kth person is killed in circle in a fixed direction.​
The task is to choose the safe place in the circle so that when you perform these operations starting from 1
st place in the circle, you are the last one remaining and survive.

The first line of input contains an integer T denoting the number of test cases . Then T test cases follow. Each test case contains 2 integers n and k .

For each test case, in a new line, output will be the safe position which satisfies the above condition.

Your Task:
This is a function problem. You are required to complete the function josephus that takes two parameters n and k and returns an integer denoting safe position .

1 <= T <= 100
1 <= k, n <= 20


3 2
5 3

Testcase 1:
There are 3 persons so skipping 1 person i.e 1st person 2nd person will be killed. Thus the safe position is 3.
Testcase 2: There are 5 persons so skipping 2 person i.e 3rd person will be killed . Thus the safe position is 4.

** For More Input/Output Examples Use 'Expected Output' option **
