Remove Element from Array

Remove Element

Given an array and a value, remove all the instances of that value in the array.
Also return the number of elements left in the array after the operation.
It does not matter what is left beyond the expected length.

Example:
If array A is [4, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3]
and value elem is 1,
then new length is 3, and A is now [4, 2, 3]

Try to do it in less than linear additional space complexity.

NOTE: You only need to implement the given function. Do not read input, instead use the arguments to the function. Do not print the output, instead return values as specified. Still have a doubt? Checkout Sample Codes for more details.
