Sansa and XOR

Problem Statement :

Sansa has an array. She wants to find the value obtained by XOR-ing the contiguous subarrays, followed by XOR-ing the values thus obtained. Determine this value.


Subarray	Operation	Result
3		None		3
4		None		4
5		None		5
3,4		3 XOR 4		7
4,5		4 XOR 5		1
3,4,5		3 XOR 4 XOR 5	2
Now we take the resultant values and XOR them together:

. Return .

Function Description

Complete the sansaXor function in the editor below.

sansaXor has the following parameter(s):

int arr[n]: an array of integers

int: the result of calculations

Input Format

The first line contains an integer , the number of the test cases.

Each of the next  pairs of lines is as follows:
- The first line of each test case contains an integer , the number of elements in .
- The second line of each test case contains  space-separated integers .

Tree: Huffman Decoding

Huffman coding assigns variable length codewords to fixed length input characters based on their frequencies. More frequent characters are assigned shorter codewords and less frequent characters are assigned longer codewords. All edges along the path to a character contain a code digit. If they are on the left side of the tree, they will be a 0 (zero). If on the right, they'll be a 1 (one). Only t
