Length of the longest subsequence such that xor of adjacent elements is non-decreasing

Given a sequence **arr** of **N** positive integers, the task is to find the length of the longest subsequence such that xor of adjacent integers in the subsequence must be **non-decreasing**.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 8, arr = {1, 100, 3, 64, 0, 5, 2, 15}Output:6

The subsequence of maximum length is {1, 3, 0, 5, 2, 15}

with XOR of adjacent elements as {2, 3, 5, 7, 13}Input:N = 3, arr = {1, 7, 10}Output:3

The subsequence of maximum length is {1, 3, 7}

with XOR of adjacent elements as {2, 4}.

**Approach:**

- This problem can be solved using dynamic programming where
**dp[i]**will store the length of the longest valid subsequence that ends at index**i**. - First, store the xor of all the pairs of elements i.e.
**arr[i] ^ arr[j]**and the pair**(i, j)**also and then sort them according to the value of xor as they need to be non-decreasing. - Now if the pair
**(i, j)**is considered then the length of the longest subsequence that ends at**j**will be**max(dp[j], 1 + dp[i])**. In this way, calculate the maximum possible value of**dp[]**array for each position and then take the maximum of them.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
