# Circling on and on

**Computer Science**Level 3

A Circular Linked List is a linked list whose last element has a pointer pointing back to the first element.

.A circular linked list of 10 nodes consists of integers in a strictly increasing order from the head to the tail.

Now, suppose you are given the pointer to a random node in the linked list. What is the minimum number of nodes you'd need to access twice to find the least element in the linked list?
