Quadruplet pair with XOR zero in the given Array
  • Last Updated : 27 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] of N integers such that any two adjacent elements in the array differ at only one position in their binary representation. The task is to find whether there exists a quadruple (arr[i], arr[j], arr[k], arr[l]) such that arr[i] ^ arr[j] ^ arr[k] ^ arr[l] = 0. Here ^ denotes the bitwise xor operation and 1 ≤ i < j < k < l ≤ N.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {1, 3, 7, 3} 
Output: No 
1 ^ 3 ^ 7 ^ 3 = 6
Input: arr[] = {1, 0, 2, 3, 7} 
Output: Yes 
1 ^ 0 ^ 2 ^ 3 = 0 
 

 

 

  • Naive approach: Check for all possible quadruples whether their xor is zero or not. But the time complexity of such a solution would be N4, for all N
    Time Complexity: 
     



  • Efficient Approach (O(N4), for N &leq; 130): We can Say that for array length more than or equal to 130 we can have at least 65 adjacent pairs each denoting xor of two elements. Here it is given that all adjacent elements differ at only one position in their binary form thus there would result in only one set bit. Since we have only 64 possible positions, we can say that at least two pairs will have the same xor. Thus, xor of these 4 integers will be 0. For N < 130 we can use the naive approach.
    Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
     

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
const int MAX = 130;
 
// Function that returns true if the array
// contains a valid quadruplet pair
bool validQuadruple(int arr[], int n)
{
 
    // We can always find a valid quadruplet pair
    // for array size greater than MAX
    if (n >= MAX)
        return true;
 
    // For smaller size arrays, perform brute force
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        for (int j = i + 1; j < n; j++)
            for (int k = j + 1; k < n; k++)
                for (int l = k + 1; l < n; l++) {
                    if ((arr[i] ^ arr[j] ^ arr[k] ^ arr[l]) == 0) {
                        return true;
                    }
                }
    return false;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 0, 2, 3, 7 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    if (validQuadruple(arr, n))
        cout << "Yes";
    else
        cout << "No";
 
    return 0;
}

  • Time Complexity: 
     

  • Another Efficient Approach (O(N2log N), for N &leq; 130): 
    Compute Xor of all pairs and hash it. ie, store indexes i and j in a list and Hash it in form <xor, list>. If the same xor is found again for different i and j, then we have a Quadruplet pair. 
    Below is the implementation of the above approach :
     

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.LinkedList;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;
 
public class QuadrapuleXor {
 
    static boolean check(int arr[])
    {
        int n = arr.length;
         
        if(n < 4)
            return false;
        if(n >=130)
            return true;
             
        Map<Integer,List<Integer>> map = new HashMap<>();
         
        for(int i=0;i<n-1;i++)
        {   
            for(int j=i+1;j<n;j++)
            {
                int k = arr[i] ^ arr[j];
                if(!map.containsKey(k))
                    map.put(k,new LinkedList<>());
                 
                List<Integer> data = map.get(k);
                if(!data.contains(i) && !data.contains(j))
                {
                    data.add(i);
                    data.add(j);
                    if(data.size()>=4)
                        return true;
                    map.put(k, data);
                }
            }   
        }
        return false;
    }
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
                  throws java.lang.Exception
    {
        int arr[] = { 1, 0, 2, 3, 7 };
      
        if (check(arr))
            System.out.println("Yes");
        else
            System.out.println("No");
    }
}
