You have 2017 cards numbered 1, 2, 3, ..., 2017 in the same order. In each move, you can change the order of two adjacent cards. (For example, if you had only four cards arranged as 1234, what you could achieve in one move would be 2134, 1324, or 1243.)

What is the minimum number of moves required for the above cards to be arranged backwards as 2017, 2016, ..., 2, 1?

There are 13 caves arranged in a circle. There is a thief hiding in one of the caves. Each day the the thief can move to any one of of the caves that is adjacent to the cave in which he was staying the previous day. And each day, you are allowed to enter any two caves of your choice.

What is the minimum number of days to guarantee in which you can catch the thief?

Note: Thief may or may not move to adjacent cave. You can check any two caves, not necessarily be adjacent. If thief and you exchange your caves, you will surely cross at some point, and you can catch the thief immediately.
