Given an array a of size N and an integer K. The task is to find the maximum bitwise and value of elements of any subsequence of length K
Note: a[i] <= 109 
Examples: 
 

Input: a[] = {10, 20, 15, 4, 14}, K = 4 
Output:
{20, 15, 4, 14} is the subsequence with highest ‘&’ value. 
Input: a[] = {255, 127, 31, 5, 24, 37, 15}, K = 5 
Output: 8

 

Naive Approach: A naive approach is to recursively find the bitwise and value of all subsequences of length K and the maximum among all of them will be the answer. 
Efficient Approach: An efficient approach is to solve it using bit properties. Below are the steps to solve the problem: 
 

  • Iterate from the left(initially left = 31 as 232 > 109 ) till we find > K numbers in the vector temp (initially temp = arr) whose i-th bit is set. Update the new set of numbers to temp array
  • If we do not get > K numbers, the & value of any K elements in the temp array will be the maximum & value possible.
  • Repeat Step-1 with left re-initialized as first-bit + 1.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to find the sum of
// the addition of all possible subsets.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to perform step-1
vector<int> findSubset(vector<int>& temp, int& last, int k)
{
    vector<int> ans;
 
    // Iterate from left till 0
    // till we get a bit set of K numbers
    for (int i = last; i >= 0; i--) {
        int cnt = 0;
 
        // Count the numbers whose
        // i-th bit is set
        for (auto it : temp) {
            int bit = it & (1 << i);
            if (bit > 0)
                cnt++;
        }
 
        // If the array has numbers>=k
        // whose i-th bit is set
        if (cnt >= k) {
            for (auto it : temp) {
                int bit = it & (1 << i);
                if (bit > 0)
                    ans.push_back(it);
            }
 
            // Update last
            last = i - 1;
 
            // Return the new set of numbers
            return ans;
        }
    }
 
    return ans;
}
 
// Function to find the maximum '&' value
// of K elements in subsequence
int findMaxiumAnd(int a[], int n, int k)
{
    int last = 31;
    // Temporary arrays
    vector<int> temp1, temp2;
 
    // Initially temp = arr
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        temp2.push_back(a[i]);
    }
 
    // Iterate till we have >=K elements
    while ((int)temp2.size() >= k) {
 
        // Temp array
        temp1 = temp2;
 
        // Find new temp array if
        // K elements are there
        temp2 = findSubset(temp2, last, k);
    }
 
    // Find the & value
    int ans = temp1[0];
    for (int i = 0; i < k; i++)
        ans = ans & temp1[i];
 
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int a[] = { 255, 127, 31, 5, 24, 37, 15 };
    int n = sizeof(a) / sizeof(a[0]);
    int k = 4;
 
    cout << findMaxiumAnd(a, n, k);
}

Time Complexity: O(N*N), as we are using a loop to traverse N times and in each traversal we are calling the findSubset function which will cost O (N) time. Where N is the number of elements in the array.

Auxiliary Space: O(N), as we are using extra space for the temp array. Where N is the number of elements in the array.
