[Solved] Circular Array Rotation solution HackerRank

John Watson performs an operation called a right circular rotation on an array of integers, . After performing one right circular rotation operation, the array is transformed from  to .
Watson performs this operation  times. To test Sherlock's ability to identify the current element at a particular position in the rotated array, Watson asks  queries, where each query consists of a single integer, , for which you must print the element at index  in the rotated array (i.e., the value of ).
Input Format
The first line contains  space-separated integers, , and , respectively.
The second line contains  space-separated integers, where each integer  describes array element  (where ).
Each of the  subsequent lines contains a single integer denoting .
Constraints
Output Format
For each query, print the value of the element at index  of the rotated array on a new line.
Sample Input
3 2 3
1 2 3
0
1
2
Sample Output
2
3
1
Explanation
After the first rotation, the array becomes .
After the second (and final) rotation, the array becomes .
Let's refer to the array's final state as array . For each query, we just have to print the value of  on a new line:
  1. , so we print  on a new line.
  2. , so we print  on a new line.
  3. , so we print  on a new line.

The best solution by me:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

int main(){
int n;
int k;
int q;
scanf("%d %d %d",&n,&k,&q);
int *a = malloc(sizeof(int) * n);
for(int a_i = 0; a_i < n; a_i++){
scanf("%d",&a[a_i]);
}
for(int a0 = 0; a0 < q; a0++){
int m;
scanf("%d",&m);
int index = (((m - k) %n )+ n) % n;
printf("%d\n", a[index]);
}

return 0;
}
