I have done some but cannot figure out hot to set the player’s position to the number of the square at the same index in the connected squares array (from
specialSquaresArray to connectedSquaresArray).
I have structured English:

call the function rollDie and store the return value as the player’s score
write out the score
add the score to the player’s position
write out a message saying what square the player is on
call the function findIndexOf with suitable arguments to look for the index
of the player’s position in the special squares array and store the value
returned
if the index is not -1
set the player’s position to the number of the square at the same index
in the connected squares array
write out a message saying what square the ladder has taken the player
to
end if
write out a line break

But I just cannot figure out hot to access those arrays.
Any help appreciated.
