Given an array of size **n**. The problem is to find the length of the subsequence in the given array such that all the elements of the subsequence are sorted in increasing order and also they are alternately odd and even.

Note that the subsequence could start either with the odd number or with the even number.**Examples:**

Input :arr[] = {5, 6, 9, 4, 7, 8}Output :6{5, 6, 9,4,7,8}is the required longest increasing odd even subsequence which is the array itself in this caseInput :arr[] = {1, 12, 2, 22, 5, 30, 31, 14, 17, 11} {1,12,5,30,31,14,17} is the required longest increasing odd even subsequenceOutput :7

**Naive Approach:** Consider all subsequences and select the ones with alternate odd even numbers in increasing order. Out of them select the longest one. This has an exponential time complexity.**Efficient Approach:**

Let L(i) be the length of the LIOES (Longest Increasing Odd Even Subsequence) ending at index i such that arr[i] is the last element of the LIOES.

Then, L(i) can be recursively written as:

L(i) = 1 + max( L(j) ) where 0 < j < i and (arr[j] < arr[i]) and (arr[i]+arr[j])%2 != 0; or

L(i) = 1, if no such j exists.

To find the LIOES for a given array, we need to return max(L(i)) where 0 < i < n.

A dynamic programming approach has been implemented below for the above mentioned recursive relation.
