Sort the People

You are given an array of strings names, and an array heights that consists of distinct positive integers. Both arrays are of length n.

For each index i, names[i] and heights[i] denote the name and height of the i<sup>th</sup> person.

Return names sorted in descending order by the people's heights.

class Solution {
    // Method to sort people by their heights
    public String[] sortPeople(String[] names, int[] heights) {
        // Create a HashMap to store height as key and name as value
        Map<Integer, String> map = new HashMap<>();

        // Populate the HashMap with heights and corresponding names
        for (int i = 0; i < heights.length; i++) {
            map.put(heights[i], names[i]);

        // Sort the heights array

        // Create a result array to store sorted names
        String[] resultArr = new String[heights.length];

        // Traverse the sorted heights array in reverse order
        for (int z = 0, i = heights.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            // Retrieve the name corresponding to the current height
            resultArr[i] = map.get(heights[z]);
            // Increment the index to get the next name

        // Return the sorted array of names
        return resultArr;
