## Question

We are playing the Guess Game. The game is as follows:

I pick a number from `1`

to `n`

. You have to guess which number I picked.

Every time you guess wrong, I will tell you whether the number I picked is higher or lower than your guess.

You call a pre-defined API `int guess(int num)`

, which returns three possible results:

`-1`

: Your guess is higher than the number I picked (i.e.`num > pick`

).`1`

: Your guess is lower than the number I picked (i.e.`num < pick`

).`0`

: your guess is equal to the number I picked (i.e.`num == pick`

).

Return *the number that I picked*.

**Example 1:**

Input:n = 10, pick = 6Output:6

**Example 2:**

Input:n = 1, pick = 1Output:1

**Example 3:**

Input:n = 2, pick = 1Output:1

**Constraints:**

`1 <= n <= 2`

^{31}- 1`1 <= pick <= n`

## Python Solution

# The guess API is already defined for you. # @param num, your guess # @return -1 if my number is lower, 1 if my number is higher, otherwise return 0 # def guess(num: int) -> int: class Solution: def guessNumber(self, n: int) -> int: l=0 r=n while l<=r: m = l +(r-l)//2 if guess(m)==0: return m elif guess(m)==-1: r=m-1 else: l=m+1
