Suppose we have a sequence of non-negative integers, Namely a1, a2, ..., an. At each time we can choose one term ai with 0 < i < n and we subtract 1 from both ai and ai+1. We wonder whether we can get a sequence of all zeros after several operations.


The first line is the number of test cases T (0 < T <= 20).

The first line of each test case is a number N (0 < N <= 10000). The next line is N non-negative integers, 0 <= ai <= 109.


If it can be modified into all zeros with several operations output “YES” in a single line, otherwise output “NO” instead.


1 2
2 2



It is clear that [1 2] can be reduced to [0 1] but no further to convert all integers to 0. Hence, the output is NO.

In second case, output is YES as [2 2] can be reduced to [1 1] and then to [0 0] in just two steps.

Okay so the test cases are extremly weak. And I wouldn't have even realized if it were not for the comments. Thanks all!
Be sure to run your code on
0 4 2 0 2
before moving on to the next question

we can do this problem..... without using an array,ie O(1) space

size of array costed me many WAs

Wrong Test cases. It is not supposed to accept the sequence 0 4 2 0 2. As it is not possible to reduce down the sequence into the one with all entries zero. But it is accepting my code which accepts this sequence. :(
Simply calculating sum is not all the question wants. Correct me, if i'm wrong. :)

think simple just do what question say :P
