**Gaming Array**

### Problem Statement :

Andy wants to play a game with his little brother, Bob. The game starts with an array of distinct integers and the rules are as follows: Bob always plays first. In a single move, a player chooses the maximum element in the array. He removes it and all elements to its right. For example, if the starting array arr = [2,3,5,4,1], then it becomes arr' = [2,3] after removing [5,4,1]. The two players alternate turns. The last player who can make a move wins. Andy and Bob play g games. Given the initial array for each game, find and print the name of the winner on a new line. If Andy wins, print ANDY; if Bob wins, print BOB. To continue the example above, in the next move Andy will remove 3. Bob will then remove 2 and win because there are no more integers to remove. Function Description Complete the gamingArray function in the editor below. gamingArray has the following parameter(s): int arr[n]: an array of integers Returns - string: either ANDY or BOB Input Format The first line contains a single integer g, the number of games. Each of the next g pairs of lines is as follows: The first line contains a single integer, n, the number of elements in arr. The second line contains n distinct space-separated integers arr[i] where 0 <= i <= n. Constraints Array arr contains n distinct integers. For 35% of the maximum score: 1 <= g <= 10 1 <= n <= 1000 1<= arr[i] <= 10^5 The sum of n over all games does not exceed 1000. For 100% of the maximum score: 1 <= g <= 100 1 <= n <= 10^5 1 <= ai <= 10^9 The sum of n over all games does not exceed 10^5.
