# Maximum length subsequence with difference between adjacent elements as either 0 or 1 | Set 2

Given an array of n integers. The problem is to find maximum length of the subsequence with difference between adjacent elements in the subsequence as either 0 or 1. Time Complexity of O(n) is required.

Examples:

```Input : arr[] = {2, 5, 6, 3, 7, 6, 5, 8}
Output : 5
The subsequence is {5, 6, 7, 6, 5}.

Input : arr[] = {-2, -1, 5, -1, 4, 0, 3}
Output : 4
The subsequence is {-2, -1, -1, 0}.
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Method 1: Previously an approach having time complexity of O(n2) have been discussed in this post.

Method 2 (Efficient Approach): The idea is to create a hash map having tuples in the form (ele, len), where len denotes the length of the longest subsequence ending with the element ele. Now, for each element arr[i] we can find the length of the values arr[i]-1, arr[i] and arr[i]+1 in the hash table and consider the maximum among them. Let this maximum value be max. Now, the length of longest subsequence ending with arr[i] would be max+1. Update this length along with the element arr[i] in the hash table. Finally, the element having the maximum length in the hash table gives the maximum length subsequence.
