  • Problem Description
    A subsequence is a sequence that can be derived from another sequence by deleting some elements without changing the order of the remaining elements. Longest common subsequence (LCS) of 2 sequences is a subsequence, with maximal length, which is common to both the sequences. 

    Given two sequence of integers, A=[a1,a2,…,an] and B=[b1,b2,…,bn], find any one longest common subsequence.

    In case multiple solutions exist, print any of them. It is guaranteed that at least one non-empty common subsequence will exist. 

    Input Format

    First line contains two space separated integers, n and m, where n is the size of sequence A, while m is size of sequence B. In next line there are n space separated integers representing sequence A, and in third line there are m space separated integers representing sequence B. 

    Output Format

    Print the longest common subsequence and each element should be separated by at least one white-space. In case of multiple answers, print any one of them. 
  • Test Case 1
    Input (stdin)5 6
    1 2 3 4 1
    3 4 1 2 1 3
    Expected Output1 2 3
  • Test Case 2
    Input (stdin)6 7
    1 2 3 4 1 2
    3 4 1 2 1 3 2
    Expected Output3 4 1 2
