There are N couples numbered 1 through N. Each couple consists of two people. There are also 2N chairs numbered 1 through 2N. Each chair has a person sitting on it; for each i (1 ≤ i ≤ 2N), the person initially sitting on chair i belongs to couple number Ai. The chairs are placed in a circle, so chairs i and i+1 are adjacent for each 1 ≤ i ≤ 2N-1; chairs 2N and 1 are also adjacent.
You may perform the following operation any number of times (including zero): choose two people sitting on adjacent chairs and swap them.
We would like all couples to sit on adjacent chairs. Compute the minimum number of operations needed to achieve this.
- The first line of the input contains a single integer T denoting the number of test cases. The description of T test cases follows.
- The first line of each test case contains a single integer N.
- The second line contains 2N space-separated integers A1, A2, ..., A2N.
For each test case, print a single line containing one number — the minimum number of operations required to make each couple sit next to each other.
- 1 ≤ T ≤ 1,000
- 1 ≤ N ≤ 500,000
- 1 ≤ sum of N over all test cases ≤ 1,000,000
- 1 ≤ Ai ≤ N for each valid i
- each number from 1 to N appears in A exactly twice
Subtask #1 (35 points):
- N ≤ 1,000
- sum of N over all test cases ≤ 5,000
