Given a number N, find least prime factors for all numbers from 1 to N.  The least prime factor of an integer N is the smallest prime number that divides it.
Note : The least prime factor of all even numbers is 2. A prime number is its own least prime factor (as well as its own greatest prime factor).1 needs to be printed for 1.​


Example 1:

Input: N = 6
Output: [1, 2, 3, 2, 5, 2] 
Explanation: least prime factor of 1 = 1,
least prime factor of 2 = 2,
least prime factor of 3 = 3,
least prime factor of 4 = 2,
least prime factor of 5 = 5,
least prime factor of 6 = 2.
So answer is[1, 2, 3, 2, 5, 2]. 


Example 2:

Input: N = 4
Output: [1, 2, 3, 2]
Explanation: least prime factor of 1 = 1,
least prime factor of 2 = 2,
least prime factor of 3 = 3,
least prime factor of 4 = 2.
So answer is[1, 2, 3, 2]. 


Your Task:  
You dont need to read input or print anything. Complete the function leastPrimeFactor() which takes N as input parameter and returns a list of integers containing all the least prime factor of each numbers from 1 to N.


Expected Time Complexity: O(NlogN)
