Find the pairs in sorted array whose sum is x. See the following code to find pairs in O(n) time complexity.

package com.dev.array;

public class FindPairsInSortedArray {

public static void main(String[] args) {

int arr[] = {5,6,7,8,10,20,30,40};

int sum = 28;

boolean isFound = isPairExistsInSortedArray(arr,sum);

System.out.println(isFound == true ? "Pair Found" : "Pair Not Found");


//Time Complexity O(n)

private static boolean isPairExistsInSortedArray(int[] arr, int sum) {

int start=0, end=arr.length-1;

while(start<=end) {

if(arr[start]+arr[end]==sum) {

System.out.println("Pair: ["+arr[start]+", "+ arr[end]+"]");

return true;


if(arr[start]+arr[end] > sum) {


}else {




System.out.println("Pair not found!");

return false;



Output:- Found: true
