**Minimum Absolute Difference in an Array**

### Problem Statement :

The absolute difference is the positive difference between two values a and b, is written | a - b | or | b - a | and they are equal. If a = 3 and b = 20, | 3 - 2 | = | 2 - 3 | = 1 . Given an array of integers, find the minimum absolute difference between any two elements in the array. Function Description Complete the minimumAbsoluteDifference function in the editor below. It should return an integer that represents the minimum absolute difference between any pair of elements. minimumAbsoluteDifference has the following parameter(s): int arr[n]: an array of integers Returns int: the minimum absolute difference found Input Format The first line contains a single integer n, the size of arr. The second line contains n space-separated integers, arr [ i ]. Constraints 2 <= n <= 10^5 - 10^9 <= arr[ i ] <= 10^9 Sample Input 0 3 3 -7 0 Sample Output 0 3
