# Queries to replace every array element by its XOR with a given value with updates

Given an array, initially consisting of 0 as the only element present and Q operations of the following two types:

• Add(X): Insert X into the array.
• Update(X): Replace every array element Ai by Ai ^ X, where ^ is the XOR operation.

Examples:

Input: Q = 2
Update(2)
Output: 2 7
Explanation:
Initially, Array = {0}
Query 1: Array = {0, 5}
Query 2: Array = {0^2, 5^2} => {2, 7}

Input: Q = 2
Output: 0 3 5

Approach: The idea is to store a variable that stores the value that is to be XOR‘ed with every array element and at the time of the insertion of the element in the array to remove the effect of the XOR value, apply the XOR operation with itself. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

• Maintain a variable, say effect, to store the final XOR value.
• For Operation Add(X): Add X at the end of the list and update its value with X ^ effect.
• For Operation Update(X): Update the value of ‘effect’ with effect ^ X. This is for getting an updated XOR effect till now.
• After completing all the above operations, update all array elements with its XOR with effect, i.e. for all Ai, update Ai = Ai ^ effect.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
