__Sign Up__- Two strings, a and b, are said to be twins only if they can be made equivalent by performing some number of operations on one or both strings. There are two possible operations:
- SwapEven: Swap a character at an even-numbered index with a character at another even-numbered index.
- SwapOdd: Swap a character at an odd-numbered index with a character at another odd-numbered index.
- For example, a = "abcd" and b = "cdab" are twins because we can make them equivalent by performing operations. Alternatively, a = "abcd" and b = "bcda" are not twins (operations do not move characters between odd and even indices), and neither are a = "abc" and b = "ab" (no amount of operations will insert a 'c' into string b).
- Complete the twins function in the editor below. It has two parameters:
- An array of n strings named a.
- An array of n strings named b.
- The function must return an array of strings where each index i (0 ≤ i < n) contains the string Yes if ai and bi are twins or the string No if they are not.
- Input Format
- The internal test cases read the following input from stdin and pass it to the function:
- The first line contains an integer, n, denoting the number of elements in a.
- Each line i of the n subsequent lines (where 0 ≤ i < n) contains a string describing ai.
- The next line contains an integer, n, denoting the number of elements in b.
- Each line i of the n subsequent lines (where 0 ≤ i < n) contains a string describing bi.
- Constraints
- 1 ≤ n ≤ 10^3
- 1 ≤ lengths of ai, bi ≤ 100
- ai and bi are not guaranteed to have the same length.
- Strings ai and bi contain lowercase letters only (i.e., a through z).
- Output Format
- The function must return an array of strings where each index i (0 ≤ i < n) contains the string Yes if ai and bi are twins or the string No if they are not.
- Sample Input :
- 2
- cdab
- dcba
- 2
- abcd
- abcd
- Sample Output :
- Yes
- No
- Explanation :
- Given a = ["cdab", "dcba"] and b = ["abcd", "abcd"], we process each element like so:
- a0 = "cdab" and b0 = "abcd": We store Yes in index 0 of the return array because a0 = "cdab" → "adcb" → "abcd" = b0.
- a1 = "dcba" and b1 = "abcd": We store No in index 1 of the return array because no amount of operations will move a character from an odd index to an even index, so the two strings will never be equal.
- We then return the array ["Yes", "No"] as our answer.
