# Choose points from two ranges such that no point lies in both the ranges

Given two segments **[L1, R1]** and **[L2, R2]**, the task is to choose two elements **x** and **y** from both the ranges (one from range one and other from range two) such that no element belongs to both the ranges i.e. **x** belongs to first range and **y** belongs to second range. If no such element exists then print **-1** instead.

**Examples:**

Input:L1 = 1, R1 = 6, L2 = 3, R2 = 11

Output:1 11

1 lies only in range [1, 6] and 11 lies only in [3, 11]

Input:L1 = 5, R1 = 10, L2 = 1, R2 = 7

Output:1 10

**Approach:**

- If
**L1 != L2**and**R1 != R2**then the points will be**min(L1, L2)**and**max(R1, R2)**. - Else only one point can be chosen from one of the ranges as one of the range is completely inside the other so we print
**-1**for that point.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
