1844. Replace All Digits with Characters

#### QUESTION:

You are given a 0-indexed string s that has lowercase English letters in its even indices and digits in its odd indices.

There is a function shift(c, x), where c is a character and x is a digit, that returns the xth character after c.

For example, shift(‘a’, 5) = ‘f’ and shift(‘x’, 0) = ‘x’. For every odd index i, you want to replace the digit s[i] with shift(s[i-1], s[i]).

Return s after replacing all digits. It is guaranteed that shift(s[i-1], s[i]) will never exceed ‘z’.

Example 1:

``````Input: s = "a1c1e1"
Output: "abcdef"
Explanation: The digits are replaced as follows:
- s -> shift('a',1) = 'b'
- s -> shift('c',1) = 'd'
- s -> shift('e',1) = 'f'
``````

Example 2:

``````Input: s = "a1b2c3d4e"
Output: "abbdcfdhe"
Explanation: The digits are replaced as follows:
- s -> shift('a',1) = 'b'
- s -> shift('b',2) = 'd'
- s -> shift('c',3) = 'f'
- s -> shift('d',4) = 'h'
``````

Constraints:

``````1 <= s.length <= 100
s consists only of lowercase English letters and digits.
shift(s[i-1], s[i]) <= 'z' for all odd indices i.
``````

#### SOLUTION:

``````class Solution {
func replaceDigits(_ s: String) -> String {
let c = s.count
var s = Array(s)
for i in stride(from: 1, to: c, by: 2) {
s[i] = Character(UnicodeScalar((s[i - 1].asciiValue ?? 97) + (s[i].asciiValue ?? 48) - 48))
}
return String(s)
}
}
