Count of even and odd set bit Array elements after XOR with K for Q queries
  • Last Updated : 08 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr of N elements and another array Q containing values of K, the task is to print the count of elements in the array arr with odd and even set bits after its XOR with each element K in the array Q.

Examples: 

Input: arr[] = { 2, 7, 4, 5, 3 }, Q[] = { 3, 4, 12, 6 } 
Output: 2 3 
3 2 
2 3 
2 3

Input: arr[] = { 7, 1, 6, 5, 11 }, Q[] = { 2, 10, 3, 6 } 
Output: 3 2 
2 3 
2 3 
2 3 
 

Approach:  



  • XOR of two elements both having odd or even set bits, results to even set bits.
  • XOR of two elements, one having odd and other having even set bits or vice versa, results to odd set bits.
  • Precompute count of elements with even and odd set bits of all array elements using Brian Kernighan’s Algorithm.
  • For all elements of Q, count number of set bits. If count of set bits is even, the count of even and odd set bits elements remain unchanged. Otherwise reverse the count and display.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 

C++




// C++ Program to count number
// of even and odd set bits
// elements after XOR with a
// given element
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
void keep_count(int arr[], int& even,
                int& odd, int N)
{
    // Store the count of set bits
    int count;
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
        count = 0;
 
        // Brian Kernighan's algorithm
        while (arr[i] != 0) {
            arr[i] = (arr[i] - 1) & arr[i];
            count++;
        }
 
        if (count % 2 == 0)
            even++;
        else
            odd++;
    }
 
    return;
}
 
// Function to solve Q queries
void solveQueries(
    int arr[], int n,
    int q[], int m)
{
 
    int even_count = 0, odd_count = 0;
 
    keep_count(arr, even_count,
               odd_count, n);
 
    for (int i = 0; i < m; i++) {
 
        int X = q[i];
 
        // Store set bits in X
        int count = 0;
 
        // Count set bits of X
        while (X != 0) {
            X = (X - 1) & X;
            count++;
        }
 
        if (count % 2 == 0) {
            cout << even_count << " "
                 << odd_count << "\n";
        }
        else {
            cout << odd_count << " "
                 << even_count
                 << "\n";
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 2, 7, 4, 5, 3 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    int q[] = { 3, 4, 12, 6 };
    int m = sizeof(q) / sizeof(q[0]);
 
    solveQueries(arr, n, q, m);
 
    return 0;
}
