Problem statement

You are given an array Arr consisting of n integers, you need to find all the distinct triplets present in the array which adds up to zero.

An array is said to have a triplet {arr[i], arr[j], arr[k]} with 0 sum if there exists three indices i, j and k such that i!=j, j!=k and i!=k and arr[i] + arr[j] + arr[k] = 0.

Note :
1. You can return the list of values in any order. For example, if a valid triplet is {1, 2, -3}, then (2, -3, 1), (-3, 2, 1) etc is also valid triplet. Also, the ordering of different triplets can be random i.e if there are more than one valid triplets, you can return them in any order.
2. The elements in the array need not be distinct.
3. If no such triplet is present in the array, then return an empty list, and the output printed for such a test case will be "-1".

Constraints :
1 <= T <=  50
1 <= N <= 10^3  
-10^5 <= Arr[i] <= 10^5
Time Limit: 1 sec
Sample Input 1 :
 1
 5
-10 5 5 -5 2
 0
Sample Output 1 :
-10 5 5
Explanation for Sample Input 1 :
-10 5 5 is the only triplet that adds up to zero. Note that the order of output does not matter, so 5 -10 5 or 5 5 -10 are also acceptable.
Sample Input 2 :
3
6
1 2 3 -1 -2 -3
0
4
1 2 3 4 
1
6
-1 -1 2 2 -1 -1
0
Sample Output 2 :
1 2 -3
-1 -2 3
-1
-1 -1 2
Explanation for Sample Input 2 :
For the first input (1, 2, -3) and (-1, -2, 3) are the only triplets that add to zero.
In the second input, since there are no such triplets, we print -1.
For the third input, the only distinct triplet is (-1, -1, 2), so just print -1 -1 2.
