Problem 2356. Simulating the selection of a state with given probabilities

Lets say we have 3 different states [1,2,3] with the probabilities of occurrences of each state is given as [0.5 0.2 0.3]. Which means 50% state 1 will be selected among others. Generate randomly selected states with the probabilities given

Output array will be consisting of state numbers based on the probabilities given as input.

Example: (Quick tip: The higher simulation sampling sizes the more robust results)
