Given an array **Arr** of **N** elements and a integer **K**. Your task is to return the position of **first occurence** of **K** in the given array.

**Note:** Position of first element is considered as 1.

**Example 1:**

**Input:
**N = 5, K = 16
Arr[] = {9, 7, 2, 16, 4}
**Output:** 4
**Explanation:** K = 16 is found in the
given array at position 4.

**Example 2:**

**Input:
**N = 7, K = 98
Arr[] = {1, 22, 57, 47, 34, 18, 66}
**Output:** -1
**Explanation:** K = 98 isn't found in
the given array.

**Your Task:**

Complete the function **search()** which takes an array **arr,** two integers **n **and** k**, as input parameters and returns an integer denoting the answer. Return **-1** if the number is not found in array. You don't to print answer or take inputs.

**Expected Time Complexity:** O(N)

**Expected Auxiliary Space:** O(1)

**Constraints:**

1 <= N <= 10^{6}

1 <= K <= 10^{6}

1 <= Arr[i] <= 10^{6}
