Pictorial Presentation:

Swift Basic Programming Exercise: Count the number of times that two 7's are next to each other in a given array of integers.

Sample Solution:

Swift Code:

func array77(_ input: [Int]) -> Int {
    var ctr = 0
        for (index, number) in input.enumerated() {
        let nextIndex = index + 1
        
        if nextIndex < input.endIndex && number == 7 && (input[nextIndex] == 7 ) 
        {
            ctr += 1
        }
    }
    return ctr
}

print(array77([7, 7, 3]))
print(array77([7, 7, 2, 7, 7]))
print(array77([7, 5, 2, 7]))

Sample Output:
